I was under the impression that most of the shore of that northeast corner of Hoel, including the start of the Little Rainbow outlet, is private property.

I can't imagine doing the Pemi loop in a day. I've done the parts of it, but never the whole. I think what would do me in is the Garfield Ridge section in the middle, no matter which direction I...
