Trips

Whether you’re looking for ideas on where to go on your next portage or you just want to read about our latest adventures, below you’ll find our latest trips out into the wilderness. Each has a detailed account of our trip with (hopefully) entertaining stories, information on how you can recreate the trip with activities you can try and others you should avoid, but also maps of where we were and downloadable GPS information.

Check back often because we’re always going on some kind of trip over the summer, but we do most of our writing over the Frozen Offseason.

    We decided to spend an additional day on David so we could fully enjoy Silver Peak. A short paddle there and back, and a good 5-6 hours hiking and enjoying the sites. We camped on David two nights, which was a first. What a great feeling, waking up and not having to think about packing up right away.

    It really changed the typical paddle/portage trip experience. Gorgeous area and route.

    We did take the other way, though, coming in East and looping back around West. The views were magnificent, and you could see Silver Peak for pretty much an entire day. We liked that the first two portages were extremely inclined and difficult, but the remainder on the west side of the loop were mostly on a decline. It allowed us to make the more difficult portages earlier on when our strength was high.
