I once came across a Native Trails map of the early Northern Forest Canoe Trail that showed the portage south from Lake Memphremagog into the headwaters of the Lamoille River, and down the Lamoille to Lake Champlain. A local committee has recently been creating a Lamoille River Paddlers Trail, working with landowners to improve river access and portages and create primitive campsites. The Missisquoi is generally the better route for upstream travel than is the Lamoille, so at some point the proposed NFCT was re-routed. Another intriguing side-route to explore!
