Cobre Lake Hiking and Camping

Abandone Mine Cave exploration

Boreal forests, natural beaches, abandoned mine exploration and more wild Blueberries then I could possibly hope to eat describe my incredible experience while hiking and camping the Cobre Lake trail in beautiful summer weather.  Follow along with me and my hiking buddy as we start backpacking through the forests of northern Ontario. We start out as the sun is setting and it’s raining. Later we try not to fall into the water as we cross log bridges and try to avoid bear hunters at the start of hunting season while wondering miles off the trail…
