That time of year I think the biggest challenge may be finding a campsite if its a weekend - its a very busy area in summertime. You may be better off setting up a basecamp and taking day trips -...

For large parts of it, a cart would work fine. However the section between Fish and Long pond is rooty/narrow in places and is very steep between Fish and Little Fish.

Its been a few years, but as I recall the LC to SRP carry is fairly "rooty" and has a bit of a hill from LC headed towards SRP. I'd skip the cart .

Its been pretty dry as of late, I'd definitely check on the water levels in Hatchery Brook before committing to it. Macs Canoe Livery may have current information on it.

Interesting they left Lower Saranac alone - I can't imagine all those sites meet the 150' privy to water offset, or the .25 mile separation standard.

Wonder where they are adding sites on Upper Saranac, my impression was that most of the shoreline was private land.

The sites on Follensby do see a lot of use.

The other thing you may find is that fitting in packs will be more difficult than a normal tripping canoe due to the tumblehome. That said, as long as you feel comfortable paddling it, go for it. You...

I would second the Low's Lake idea. Only one ( very short ) carry, plenty of campsites, good fishing. Plenty of side trips.

Those newer generation Outback racks are crap IMO. The...

No issues coming back either. Once they asked to search the vehicle, whose cargo area was draped with still drying gear from a 10 day Temagami trip. They didn't waste much time.

Maybe it has to...

I have used an internal frame pack for over 15 years. Since I use a narrow gunnel canoe ( Voyageur ), having a slim profile is important so I can get it inside the boat behind the seat. I use a nylon...
