    Lake Nipissing apparently freezes over. Is there anything about 4x4s going out onto it? Not sure if it's legal or fun, seems certainly interesting as I've never driven on an ice lake!

    I don't see why not, ice fisherman do this all the time to get their huts out there and to travel back and forth

    ^agreed. same goes for the "no winter maintenance road" usually no problem running them as long as they aren't part of the snowmobile trail.

    Hmm…not many suggestions comming in.

    We'd love to explore and camp out in the deep snow when it arrives, but don't want to go somewhere we're not allowed by accident.

    No one has any unmaintained roads to look into a little further north?

    I go up to the Temagami area 5 or 6 times a year including in winter. A favourite is Red Squirrel Road on the west side of Highway 11 about 10km north of Temagami. Depending on whether logging operations are taking place, the road is plowed or it's not. Lots of side trails off Red Squirrel to keep you happy but you better have your winter kit squared away. I have taken my 2wd truck through when the snow was 6 inches or less (good snow tires and poor judgement) and we have enjoyed a nice fire in a primitive campsite by a frozen over lake. If you are into winter camping this area rocks.

    I dug out a couple of photos from Thieving Bear Lake which is about 6 kilometres west on Red Squirrel Road (on the north side) to show you fall and winter at the same site.

    Looks great…the real question is whether it gets plowed or not. Would hate to drive 6.5 hours to find all plowed…. Alot of travel. Worth it if there is an interesting deep snow route to camp along!

    I wouldn't worry about the main road (Red Squirrel) being plowed. If you take a look at the topos of the area, you will discover about a thousand side trails off of the main track. The campsite I use at Thieving Bear Lake (N47 10.338/W79 49.901) and Tyndall Lake (N47 11.266/W79 56.070) would be a good starting point for your adventures. The first site is about 6km in from 11 and the second is about 16km in. There are numerous other campsites along the road (you'll know them when you see them).

    I'd be tempted to take the blade off my winter toy and join you. I'd have to trailer it to trail but not too many places it would not go.

    I'm heading up to the Chatsworth region over Christmas.  Does anyone know if E Back line is an unmaintained road.  I'm looking for alternate routes to Hwy 10.
