Little Trout Lake Campsite #4


Canoe hauled up on the shoreline slab of rock ...

Looking up shoreline slab of rock, toward rise to tentsites ...

Topography of under-water approach: Slab of rock rises up from depths.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Slab of rock provides place to step out onto. However, it could be slippery whwn wet. Tight confines would require first canoe to be repositioned prior to landing second one. First canoe would have to be hauled further up the slope to allow second one to land and unload.

Topography to tent sites: Approximately 10 foot rise at 45 degrees to get to tent sites. There's a fair rise to get to the thunderbox.
