E.Bearskin to John Loop


John lake bwca macfarland lake pine lake
Starting from the Outfitters on East Bearskin, paddle the four miles down the lake to Alder.  From Alder portage to Canoe.  The portage from Canoe to Pine can be very challenging, but the reward of Johnson Falls waits on the other side.  Eat lunch and swim at the falls. Then continue on your way down Pine Lake.  As you paddle along on Pine be thankful that you’re paddling east, since going the opposite way can sometimes be quite windy.  After Pine you’ll briefly re-enter civilization on McFarland.  Look for moose on Little John and if your timing is right try to camp on one of the two wonderful sites there.  The trip through the Pikes and Clearwater is full of high cliffs as well as smaller rock faces.  Either portage down to Caribou or stay on Clearwater until Deer.  You’ll go from Deer to Moon and then back to Bearskin on the last day of your trip.
