I am planning impromptu solo July 17, 18 & 19 to the above. There used to be a dirt road that accessed the hydro lines (atv tracks too) between Twin Sisters and Jumping Caribou. I used to park my truck there and portage in either direction along a lovely stream with some great hidden swimming holes, and onto the lakes on either side.

Two questions: Does anyone know if this dirt track is still accessible to park in...I'm worried that it may have been privatized.

And how is campsite availability? I know this is a popular route but I don't have time to get further in and this would be a trip down memory lane.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, one more bit of info...the road I turn off Hwy 11 onto to access the dirt track is (I think) Tonomo Road.

Well Hello Tess!!!

If you get no joy here, or folks arent sure, try
calling Ravenscroft Resort, on Jumping Caribou
Lake. They would surely know.

I might even consider parking there... perhaps a little more secure?

Fingers crossed for your weather. if you need a
final weather forecast just prior, Roula and I have a very reliable source. Let us know.
