Has anyone gone through Twinkle up to Pinetorch and then onto Lewbert. I guessing these are not well traveled. We'll be single tripping and moving well. Is it too ambitious to reach Florence in two night from Twinkle?

Alscool, knows about some recent trips, through there, but he is travelling today and unavailable. Perhaps he will respond when he gets home on Wednesday.

.....And I think Mehingan was on Pinetorch recently and might know what the water levels were like on Pinetorch Creek.

I know a couple made there way up Pinetorch Creek to Pinetorch Lake late last week. Worked fine. It is a recently recovered portage but easily found. Some other groups have ventured through Lewbert lake this summer. I understand Skoozgazan Lk Ames and Pinetorch creeks to be getting low. Twinkle access is a good short cut to the back country though you have to work hard getting there.

I've just returned from a 4 week trip that took me through this area: The portages into and out of Lewbert see little use, but are easily followed: well marked with flagging tape where appropriate, and I cut out any blowdown I encountered.
Water levels in Skooztawgan/Ames Creek are so low that it is almost impassible right now. All beaver lodges in the area are high and dry, and thus, water levels are down in all the smaller lakes.

Thanks very much. Time permits, so we're making the trip up to Pukwaska for the White River! In Sept. we'll go to Twinkle.

Browaan:
Enjoy the White River and be sure to stop at the new swinging bridge. It was just re-opened a few weeks ago.
