This is the return portion of a 2 night, 3 day solo kayak trip to Queen Elizabeth II Wetlands. Some open lake paddling but mostly rivers and small lakes. The portages are marked going both ways (often with a dock) and in good condition up to Crooked Lake. Weather was fantastic in June but the bugs were bad. Some pretty scenery and definitely solitude. Saw a fair amount of wildlife on the trip including ducks, loons, herons, hawks, possibly an eagle. Numerous beavers, an otter, and of course fish, frogs, and chipmunks.
This should give you a good idea of the distance, time and portage info (length and locations). The start point is a nice campsite on Crooked Lake. The finish point is a public dock that has some parking. The start of the trip is listed here Head Lake to Crooked Lake
