Lila Lake access, Bog River access

Anybody have an idea when these access roads will be open this year. I am planning on doing a trip 3rd weekend in May and my route is depending on these roads being open to avoid even longer portages. what is the best contact to find out the status of these roads?

You might get lucky. It depends on how dry the weather is in May as to when the road is opened. Best contact for information is the area assigned DEC Ranger. Bob Zurek covers the Lila area (Region 5). If you venture into the Bog River and Lows, Corenne Black is the ranger to know (Region 6), or Will Benzel should also have that info. Find contact numbers for any ranger on the NYSDEC website.

Of course, you do know that long portages do build character, so make the trip anyway.
