Wabakimi - part 2 North West Wilderness Quest

Wabakimi Provincial Park is situated on the traditional lands of several First Nation and Aboriginal communities.

Thi is part 2 of the North West Wilderness Quest for me, but anyone can participate.Please note that this is going to be a strenuous trip, as i was advised, due to the severity of the wilderness that only 12km a day could be done. As there is less information about this park, compared with Quetico.

As this is going to be tough trip,definitely nothing like Alconquin or even Quetico. Portages are much harder and less groomed. A rough plan route is below.

This is a WCA trip and membership has it's privileges.
PLEASE help me by signing-up on the website for the trip to show you are a member and email me too.
A questionnaire will be send out to see if we have the same thoughts about camping in the wilderness

The fine print - Everyone attending will have to agree with the WCA waiver of liability too.
