Wonder if there's ferries or boats that could get me and my KTM 990 from one to other. Maybe it's a pipe dream but then what else is there to do this time of year?
Also, the big bulge of land occupied by Pukaskwa NP. Are there roads closer to the water than 17?
And I'd really like to go to Michipicoten but might be too much of a hassle and $$.
Just the hopes of a Chicago guy who hasn't seen the area since 1971.
I fly over the east side of Lake Nipigon every week. The view from the plane, and Backroads Mapbook show an aweful pile of roads and trails in the area. It's pretty remote for the most part though, you would probably want a SPOT.
