Detailed Route Info
Your journey starts outside of the Boundary Waters on Crane Lake, which is a gateway into both Voyageurs National Park and the western BWCA. You will enter the BWCAW while passing through the Little Vermillion Narrows, after which you cross into Little Vermillion Lake.
You won’t have much trouble making it into Little Vermillion in just a few hours, so if you want a greater challenge consider continuing down the Loon River and into Loon Lake.
