Hey Folks,

I was planning on going out on a canoe trip that will pass through Anima Nipissing Lake followed by the Mountain Lake network of portages.

Does anyone forsee any problems throughout this area with regard to the low water levels? Would you recommend switching my route because of it? Keep in mind that I will be with a group of kids from a summer camp.

Thanks

Seth

In case no one else answers who has been there recently, I haven't done the trip in many years, but my hunch (and it is just that) is that it shouldn't be a problem - esp. if it rains this week!

Seth,

It's been a very long time since I have done the Mountain Lake route. If I recall correctly, there are some fairly grueling portages. If you are taking kids, make sure they are prepared for physical labor. I guess it depends on their age and skill level.

i just came back from this route. there is a small lake between breeches and anima nip that is low at the moment. nothing you shouldn't be able to power through as long as your not overloaded.
