The put in can be found off of Devil's Lake road. It is a well maintained boat launch with some space for free parking.
-Head NW on Devil's Lake for approximately 2km. The 1.5 km portage to Sheldon Lake can be found in a small bay on the W shore in a small bay. There is signage at the landing point along with an old 1940's GMC truck.
-The 1.5km portage follows an ATV trail to Sheldon Lake and is fairly flat and well established. Other than the distance and a few detours around muddy spots it is fairly easy.
-Paddle W across Sheldon Lake to the next portage which is located directly to the right of a small cabin
-The 700m portage to Cooney Lake is another clear trail and again is fairly easy
-Cooney Lake is another short paddle follows by a 475m portage
-Peter's Pond is small and can be swampy in dry conditions but leads to a short 150m portage to Victoria Lake. While this portage is short, the trail is rough and traverses some jagged rock.
-The paddling in Victoria Lake is initially through a marsh for the first 100m but opens up after a lift over.
-Paddle 1.5km W to reach the short 30m portage to Wolf Lake
-Repeat in reverse to reach Devil's Lake Access Point
Day 1 - Arrived at Access point at 10:30am and took our time paddling/portaging to Cooney Lake where we set up camp.
Day 2 - Left Cooney Lake basecamp and explored Victoria and Wolf Lakes, stopping along the way to fish and have a shore lunch. Returned to basecamp for the night.
Day 3 - Climbed to the peak of the highest peak in the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands PP on the Ganaraska trail which can be accessed from both the E and W end of Cooney Lake
Day 4 - Tore down camp and travelled back to the Devil's Lake access point
