Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Horseshoe side was "mucky", with submerged logs. A fairly long climb to the top of the ridge, and then you pass through a burned (fire) area, just as you begin to drop down to Gaskin. Some of the biggest, mature Cedar trees I ever saw are here.

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

Gaskin is a typical, irregular lake. I saw Moose on the West end. There's a campsite on the Westerly end, on the West side of a large land mass in the center part of the lake. I highly recommend this one!
