  • Updated 6/6/2022 - Border Route Trail Tornado and Current Conditions

    A tornado swept through the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness approximately one-mile west of the Clearwater to Mountain Portage last fall.

    The main path of the the tornado damage has now been cleared off the Border Route Trail. There are still a few pockets of blowdown, and a dozen or so large trees that still need to be cleared but hikers can easily maneuver around them.

    Hike within your abilities, assume risk, and remember it is a wilderness.
