Does anyone have any information on the Nabakwasi River trip? We're experienced lake travellers but not too good with rapids. Please let us know about difficulty and remoteness. AND, do you know where to rent a canoe nearby? Thanks, Randy

Randy:

There is a brief description of the route on this site. You can find it here

There is a detailed description in Kevin Callan's new book Ontario's Lost Canoe Routes

The Nabakawsi loop is not a whitewater trip. Basically, it's a good remote lake loop with some rapids that can be portaged. You may have to line or run some shallow rapids on Hanover Creek. It's a tough go but only makes up half a day. I really loved the route. Good luck.

Has anyone done this route recently? Would you be able to share comments regarding the state of the portages or other information? A search of the site didn't turn up any talk of this route in the past 10 years (or so).

Here's a bit more information to add to this thread:

There is a map provided below.

OP asked about canoe rental nearby; there's an outfitter that rents canoes and kayaks nearby according to the website:

Quote:
"Wilderness Canoe Trips & Camping: We rent canoes and kayaks to canoe trippers as we are in the heart of Ontario's best backcountry Canoe routes. We are close to the Nabakwasi River Canoe Route, and the Circle 4 Canoe Route, which are all easily accessible right from our dock."


It's at: https://www.twinj.com/

Also, in other threads on this site there are links provided to a trip report by Richard Munn. Those links don't seem to work, but this one does: https://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/nabakwasi-river-loop

We ran into a group when we were clearing the 4M circle route a few weeks back who said it was in excellent condition. Well signed and good trails apparently. Better than the 4M route pre-brushing (they were a day ahead of us until the final portage). 4M was in good condition save a few blowdowns and the gravel pit portage.

I did this loop last week and can confirm the information that Stajanleafs supplied- the portages were all pretty good on this loop.

My trip report is here: http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 08&t=47052
