Hi HW BAG

The Cross-Over should take around 2 full days. Its around 45 km in total. This estimate is based on how long it took my group to do it. If you search myccr, you should be able to find a map I produced about the journey. Good luck

Nick

Great thanks for the info Nick! How was the camp sights on crossover and how long did it take you to do the whole trip?
Thanks Dave

Hi Dave,

The camp sites aren't great on the crossover. I camped at the end of a portage on one evening and on the next day, I noticed one other camp site further along the way. The crossover route goes through crown land and the portages/camp sites aren't identified at all. Also, Where do you plan on starting on the Coulonge? Lac Pomponne in La Verendrye?
I would need a little bit more information regarding your trip to give you a rough estimate of how long it would take i.e. time of year to determine water flow. There are many flat sections on the noire that require paddling. Also, knowing your experience level in rapids.

Best,

Nick

There is a dam at the head of the creek from the Coulonge to Lake Bryson, I've camped there and it is very nice. The next site as of a few years ago is a little island as you approach the fat part of the lake, it is to the west of a larger island - the southern tip is open. It's a nice site. After that I can't really help, we camped in the front yard of the first cabin after the portage the one time I did the cross over (it was getting dark). I do remember there being plenty of open spots after that and thinking that we would have been easily able to find a site. Also, to save you some time finding the portage, after you take the little trail out of Bryson, take a right on the ATV "road" and then a left - follow this past the first pond, there is a trail on the left to the second pond (it was flagged 10 years ago!).

I have published a map,
from notes taken by Nicholas Dantono
It is in French.
It is available from here:
http://www.cartespleinair.org/Canot/canorama.html

Last summer i have traveled the part from Lac Bryson to the Coulonge

Somewhere before June, I plan to:
1. update the crossover (liaison in French) map
2. update the Coulonge map
3. (maybe) add a new preliminary map of the upper Noire.
