The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: Start north of Baie-St.-Paul and ski 62 miles in seven days through hilly fir and birch forest. Along the way, cross the River of Flies and the River of Whirlpools. Overnight in cozy wood-heated cabins.
When to go: February to March
Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous
Travel advisory: Although snowmobiles carry all the gear from cabin to cabin, you'll never see their tracks; the noisy, smelly machines take an entirely different route.
