(A trip into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area)
Although the Crab Lake Portage is about 1 & 1/4 miles long, it is not a bad portage and it provides access to Cummings Lake. This area is lightly used, and the Small Mouth Bass and Northern Pike fishing is excellent. This area is best suited for a base camp type of trip. Travel time from the entry point at Burntside Lake to your base camp location can be done in one day of travel.
