Angleworm Hiking Trail in the BWCAW is Partially Flooded

We received this notice from the USFS today.  Apparently beaver activity is causing significant flooding of the Angleworm hiking trail at the south end of Angleworm Lake.  The flooded area is near the portage trail to Hegman Lake, and that portage may also be impacted by the flooding.  Click this image for a more detailed image showing the particular location.

A navigation map and compass are important when hiking the Angleworm Trail under normal conditions.  These changed conditions may require additional orienteering expertise, and some bushwacking.  More information is available at the Superior National Forest website here.
