Hi All

I'm headed into Quetico for the first time and going through Carp to the Man Chain. Then I have several routes depending on how we feel. Fom a loop through Blackstone, Or a loop without Blackstone, then down through Jasper and Ottertrack. return through Emerald or the border. or an out'n'back and wander around the Man Lakes for 8 days. I like exploring but various base camps and exploring little corners of lakes might be more fun that blowing through and making some miles.

Quick rundown. 4 people . Two canoes  two 2-3 year vets, 1 has gone once. 1 newbie.    60 years more or less. Some more, some less

We get along but we like to take out time too. 

The question is, is it worth it? Are threre interesting fishing, sights, history, fishing, beatiful spots that i would otherwise miss?

I can only offer that if I had a Carp permit and 6 or more days, I'd go Man Chain, Falls to Wet, than McEwen Chain to Louisa and out through Agnes, Meadows, Sunday, etc. The McEwen chain is fantastic.

Whichever direction you go, I'm sure it will be fantastic.

Looks like an awesome route but I'm going to save that. I definitely want to do the Falls Chain and continue into Kawnipi then back through Agnes. But I want to have time to wander up there a little too. That's another trip, this one is more laid back and fishing time. I think we're going to be too comfortable to be moving real fast. And that's the plan. I'm almost thinking a day trip up the Blackstone and then explore the area right there. maybe move camp every 2-3 days. Thanks

Well, I haven't done the border from Saganaga to Moose on the Canadian side but should be an easy low portage trip and not much campsite competition. Probably just one night.
