Methye Portage - Historic Trail

One-way hiking trail extends from the NW end of Wallis Bay on Lac la Loche, NW to the Clearwater River. Plaque commemorating Peter Pond at S end of the trail. Boat access required to trail head.

Northern Saskatchewan's longest and most historic portage trail spans the plateau linking the Churchill and Arctic watersheds. In 1778, the famous explorer, Peter Pond, guided by the Dene First Nations crossed this 20.5km trail, opening the first practical overland trade route to the Northwest.
