This short trip starts as a long paddle across busy Burntside Lake to a rugged portage. The Crab Lake portage will bring you to a series of small, remote, and scenic lakes. Solitude should be easy to find. Fishing and camping opportunities abound. This route can return to Burntside Lake without portaging by following Crab Creek. Further, it connects into the Trout Lake Loop trip for possible additional adventure.
