good day everyone, We have canoed the Wolf Lake area as far as Doherty lake a few times now over the 3 yrs. As muich as we love the area, we think its time to explore other routes along system. So, asking the experts/regulars on here for suggestions to get us to see other parts of the area. We are thinking 4-6 day trips, and are open to most anything. Can I can some feedback on good routes? Thanks in advnace. :-)

In Chiniguchi more loops are available incorporating in your route parts of the Sturgeon river - through Kettle falls, Stouffer, Parsons, Rawson or Maskinonge lakes (listing options from north to south). Did you see Donald and Maskinonge lakes? - another option. Are you open to different and more remote (from Toronto) access points and rugged portages? There's semi-loops to start at Gamble lake in the north or Gervais Rd. on the Surgeon.

Hey! Just posted a trip report you might be interested in. Going into Temagami from the north end (beauty lake rd) is certainly more of a drive for most people, but there are a number of routes you can take that are quite easy and include lots of paddling.
1. down the lady evelyn to Florence Lake and back up (not so much of a loop but Florence is a must see). Or you could do a shuttle to beauty lake rd, down the lady evelyn River past cabin falls and out to an access point.
or
2. The Lady Evelyn River loop is a super popular short trip. You can access it through Mowat Landing > Lady Evelyn Lake > up the North Lady Evelyn River > down the South Lady Evelyn River > out or tack on Diamond Lake and out.

Lots of ideas on my blog WatermarkWords.org and also check out Tierney's Blog at TheHappyAdventure.com

We have the Donald portion of the loop a few times.
We are more then open to any suggestions, and not too concerned with longer drives to get to other acces points.
Definitely am going to check out the 2 blogs suggested by heatherlynne as well. If Florence lake is a "must see", I must look into it:-)
Thanks for a couple of ideas...will look into it. Will give me some new areas of interest to mull over during the winter.

Yes, Florence is a must-see, as are Wolf Lake, the Trout Streams and Makobe River (if there is enough water).
