Extending nearly 150 miles in northern Minnesota along the Canadian border, the wilderness area encompasses more than 1 million acres.

  • The first ~40 pages are a great overview of the history of the BWCA and a great introduction to camping/canoeing techniques. Not what I bought the book for, but really enjoyed this section. Especially introduction to the history of the land, from it's earliest beginnings to constant fight to preserve the area today.

    The real reason to buy this book are the detailed routes. It's laid out so that each Entry Point (EP) has two planned routes. A shorter (not necessarily easier) and longer route are detailed. The shorter routes range from one night to four while the longer range from four to eight nights. I found most of the routes to be fairly aggressive, with lots of portages and ground covered each day. There are very few "easy" routes with infrequent, short portages. Then again, that's not really what the BWCA is about.

    Each route includes the following:
    * Entry Point
    * Difficulty Rating
    * Fisher Maps Needed (Fisher is one of three companies that make dedicated maps of the BWCA. I enjoy McKenzie myself, but it's personal preference)
    * Number of days
    * Miles covered
    * Number of lakes, creeks, rivers, and portages

    The detailed explanation of each route is broken down by days and heavy emphasis is given to the difficulty of each days portages and paddles.

    You can easily follow the routes laid out in the book or you can use them as a guide for your own routes. The author provides enough details so that it's easy to pick segments of a trip and combine different ones to create your own route.

    One thing this book lacks is maps. There is only one map in the entire book and it's a very rough overview of the entire section of Boundary Waters that is discussed in the book. That's why you have a detailed Fisher or McKenzie map though.

  • Excellent book! The author offers details about portages and lakes that I couldn't find online anywhere...it's always good to know what you're getting into in the wilderness so you can plan for it. I like that routes are offered that include campsite, fishing, and scenery tips, and that those routes are rated for difficulty and approximated for travel time. I'd recommend this book (and its companion for the Eastern Region) to anyone planning a trip into the BWCA!

  • This book is great for planning BWCA trips as a guide. We use it to decide where to go when we take the trip. We have previously checked it out of the library but since we have gone every year for the last four years, we decided to invest in our own...along with the Eastern Region book. The bonus we LOVE is that it lists the lakes with the type of fish that you find in them at the back of the book. That's one of the biggest selling points, in our opinions!

  • Good detail but could have had some maps to clarify the areas he is talking about. He gave distance of portages in "rods" so it was difficult to determine how long they actually were. It turns out one rod equals about 16 feet.

  • This book has been very helpful on both our trips to the bwca Eastern side. We had checked it out from the library the fist trip and liked it so much we bought it for our second trip. The book describes the lakes, portages, and campsites very well. It also has several route recommendations for various skill levels.

    We purchased a used copy that was listed as like new. The book was in very good shape. Very happy with this purchase!

  • This is a useful resource for planning loops and routes through some of the lesser-used, and a few of the more popular, BWCA regions. Routes and loops are rated on scale of difficulty, number of days to make the trip, and other useful information. This is not a resource to use for planning how to pack, what to bring, what to expect, etc. The author is well versed, and draws on his personal travel experience in the BWCA. However, there are some notable editorial mistakes in the text.
