Hi,

I'm looking for advice on a six day solo trip for September. I'm a reasonably experienced flat water tripper, but have only done one solo trip before. I'm not looking for anything demanding in terms of big water or white water. I am looking for beauty and isolation--and recognize that the latter may require some extensive portaging. That's fine with me. Any thought you might have would be very much appreciated.

best,

Elliott

Elliott:
It is pretty hard to fit in an isolated trip in 6 days unless you are in a position to fly in somewhere.For example you could fly into Florence and paddle out through Pinetorch CR, Wakimika, Obabika and back to the Central Access Road on Temagami.
Or you could consider leaving from Ferguson Bay (Sandy Inlet) and paddling through to Whitefish Bay, Aston, Cole, Turner, Eagle, Little Eagle, Whitewater, Anima Nipissing, Red Squirrel and back to Ferguson Bay.In mid September this later route would be pretty quiet and doubtful that you would see anyone once you went past Aston.You might see people on Anima Nip. and Red Squirrel.
The water levels may be low on the Eagle River and require some extra portaging in that area.

Others here may have some thoughts as well.

Thanks for your advice, Ed. If I follow your second suggestion, is there a road into Ferguson Bay (Sandy Inlet) and parking?

Best,

Elliott
