Burntside Lake to Crab Lake

Boundary Waters portage
Posted by: Boppa
Season/Year: Summer 07
Water Level: low
Length: 420 rods
Rating: average
Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
The new section to this portage is more up and down and requires attention for deliberate foot placement as it is quite rocky, this ends after 1/3. The portage is then much easier and has a long gentle incline to a gradual decline that ends at a sandy beach on Crab Lake. The 2007 Fisher maps have revised it to 420 rods. We were able to double portage in just under 2 hours, admittedly we are not the quickest portagers out there.

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

Crab Lake has a main body and 4 outgoing sections. A lot of shore line to explore and is normally a good lake in the wind. The water clarity is good and it is a pretty lake.
