Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness-Hegman Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a great trip short trip- perfectly suited for beginners- with a short portage and a surprise at the end. Portage into North Hegmen and paddle to the narrows at the far end of the lake to view the collection of dark red figures and symbols on the left side of the long bay, several feet above the waterline.

The figure of a man stands as if in surprise, with arms outstretched and fingers spread apart. Standing with him are a moose and dog (or wolf). Crescent-shaped canoes float on the rock face. This tightly composed picture is one of the clearest of the many Indian pictographs scattered throughout the Great Lakes region of United States and Canada."
