Blueberry Lake's new canoe access

Blueberry Lake's old-growth wonders now have a second canoe-route access thanks to Friends of Temagami.

In July, three members (Neil Caswell, Mike Murphy, Bob Olajos) re-opened the portages between Blueberry and Sunrise lakes linking Blueberry to Rabbit Lake. Previously canoeists had to enter, and return, from Cassels Lake.

FOT has set the pace for nastawgan resurrection in recent years. The Marjorie Lake route was also re-opened this summer.

Roadless Blueberry Lake is one of the most accessible old-growth forests in the area. Its 250-year-old red-and-white pine stands mix with ancient white cedar and yellow birch.

From the Cassels Lake public landing it can be reached by canoe in little over two hours.

In 1999, Ancient Forest Exploration and Research brought attention to the area, threatened with logging, by building the hiking trails and publishing a guide book.
