Boundary Waters Hiking and Canoeing

While in the boundary waters, we spent one day hiking and one day canoeing. Rather than finding one long hike, we decided to piece together two shorter hikes for a full day.

Ready to hike with my baby little younger brother:

The first hike was called Caribou Rock Trail, and it featured some beautiful views of the area as well as some parts of tougher trail that involved a little scrambling.

The second hike was called Magnetic Rock Trail, and the whole trail was lined with blueberry bushes! This trail was a lot more crowded with families and individuals filling containers with blueberries. We didn’t bring a container to fill, so we enjoyed en route:

The second day was consumed by a canoeing trip.

The folks at our B&B helped us bring two canoes to Bearskin Lake:

We canoed across Bearskin Lake and then walked across a short portage to Duncan Lake:

The above pictures were actually taken at the start of the trip and not at the portage. I don’t have photos from the water since I didn’t want to risk my camera getting wet. This turned out to be a good call since the canoe with the supplies bag tipped over!

Total, we were out canoeing for about 4 hours, including a short hike and lunch break at Rose Lake Falls by Duncan Lake.
