Angleworm Lake to Basswood Lake Loop

Angleworm Lake to Basswood Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Two of the longest portages in the BWCAW are negotiated on this trip. Several beautiful, small lakes are utilized, and the largest lake in the BWCAW is visited. Two rivers form part of the journey. Pictographs, galloping white water, waterfalls, and the international border add interest.

The fishing can be tremendous, and wildlife is about. The trip can be shortened or modified by utilizing parts of the Mudro Lake or the South Hegman Lake route. This route is so rugged that advance reservations will seldom be needed."

This route is definately not for beginners. It is a great route for experience canoeists but not for beginners like it says. The long portages will soon bring any beginner to utter mush and younger aged people especially will not want to come back. Beginners should stick with a trip where all portages are 150 rods or less.
