I was hoping to take a couple of friends to the area, especially Paradise Lagoon, but this is vigin territory to me. Are portages marked? Like with a sign or blaze? Where can I get detailed maps? We're used to travelling in Algonquin, where lets face it life is pretty easy. Any help would be great Thanks in advance.

all portages in that area are well marked. if you are used to portaging in algonquin you won't have any problems, depending as always on conditions. there are excellent maps on this website which cover every corner of it in detail. the general area is called the chiniguchi by the way.

In Chiniguchi, for an Algonquin traveller, I wouldn't say well marked with signs. However, if you know where they are, the landings and trails are obvious as most are well used (by Temagami standards).

Hi Brian -Is there a biology centre/cabin on Wolf? I went for a truck ride to the Bridge at the north six weeks ago. I have some funding for my school to provide an outdoor experience, and my Mathias trip proposal was turned down because of water travel. Tanya McCubbin was telling me of a research centre on Wolf. Do you know of anyone that could give a one-day hiking tour?

I know of no research centre on Wolf, nor see that happening as it is both under mining leases and a candidate park. With regard to someone giving a hiking tour, Curly might know.

Here is a pic I took this December from the North End of Wolf Lake. I was standing on the bridge looking south.
