Preliminary DiscussionThe West Coast Trail (WCT) trip has been several years in the making, although Sicilian and I are both getting reasonably seasoned at our annual hike now, the main driver for the WCT at this point in time was Fury who now lives on the West Coast and had this trip as a kind of bucket list item.
Spring camping trip for the Trout opener on Rosebury Lake. On this short canoe trip there were 6 all together. Bax, Bush, MulderX, Wiley, Texas and YOK. Not much to talk about on this trip other than....Cold. It was very cold on both days, however it did give me a chance to really see how cold my regular equipment could go.
Planning for the annual trip this year surrounded possibly
doing the WCT primarily, however due to various conflicts and other things that
cropped up this was deemed not doable this year. So a more local destination was decided upon.
Just a long weekend trip to Algonquin Park, starting at the Smoke lake access point. Originally this trip for for 2 us to go on and would have make a lot more sense given the canoe (17 ft), but Bax had to back out at the last minute. So with all alternatives for a second exhausted, I endeavored to do the trip myself, solo.Day 1Temp: 28CWind: NE @3 KM/hr (15 km gusts)Distance: 17.
A quick weekend trip since I had the time, but it was cut short due to bad weather that I didn't feel like sitting out without a fire. Nice area and the camping was bug free, but without a fire to keep me a little warmer and a lot less damp, I went home early.
If you can't come straight through the trail then I would recommend coming in from the Halfway Dump Access Point.
I would love to have a good story here, but there isn't a lot to say on this one. We were supposed to enter Algonquin @ Tim River for this trip, but in the end the lakes were still frozen (yes, cold even for Canada @ this time of year), so one of the guys was kind enough to let us use his lake front lot instead.

Overall the Coastal Trail in LSPP is quite a unique
experience. You will spend more time
moving from rock to rock than is comfortable for most people and if it is wet,
there are sections of the trail that will go from a nice perch to a dangerous
slide in no time at all.
The first of what hopefully will become an annual trip for me and some friends. This year we ended up in Algonquin Park to conquer the Highland Backpacking trail. With the departure day approaching the weather wasn't looking good and so there were some last minute wet weather additions to the already large pack of goods that were coming on the trip.
