The put-in for this trip is on Ena Lake with plenty of parking and a dock to make your launch easy. You will paddle past a few cabins before coming to the short portage into Vermillion Lake.
Vermillion Lake is a beautiful area. With no residences you will love the feeling of seclusion despite only being a few kilometers from your vehicle. Large granite cliffs, dense forest and numerous islands to camp on make this an excellent route to explore. Be sure to check out the beach, hiking trails and waterfalls at the northwest end of the lake where Vermillion spills into Big Sand Lake.
