Round to Tuscarora

Boundary Waters portage

Length: 500 rods

Portage Description:
This is a difficult way to enter the wilderness, though the result at Tuscarora almost (!) makes up for it. Previous descriptions in books list 11 canoe rests but I saw none that were usable (though I agree with the policy to let the wilderness be natural, I could have used a rest or two)

Lots of up and down that are steep at times, but Tuscarora is beautiful and lakes to the west are great.

I recommend to exit (or enter to miss this portage) via Brant and Bat lakes.

Lake after portage: Tuscarora
Known campsites: 8+
Lake Description:

Fabulous lake with several deep spots and good structure for fish. A very good campsite is on the west shore on a rocky point
