POINTS OF INTEREST
Very nice lakes circuit. Lac Cawasachouane and Lac Henault are long and narrow, and easy to navigate in windy conditions because of the great number of islands that provide shelter. A remarkable section between Lac Henault and Lac des Baies is characterized by a series of small lakes connected by short portages.
The 25 km linear section (12,5 km two-way) allows to reach the 83-km loop.
