Amygdaloid Sea Arch Coordinates?

Post by Ingo » Fri Aug 24, 2018 6:49 am

Heading out on Labor Day and spending a couple days at Belle Isle, hoping to explore Crystal Cove and Amygdaloid by canoe. Does anyone have coordinates for the sea arch? I've read that it's pretty much directly across from the Keyhole, but looking for a little more direction. Any other suggestions for exploring Amygdaloid? Hoping the weather cooperates and not make it a moot point!

It is near the far northeastern end of Amygaloid Lake. I think this link confirms it. Click on the waypoint on the map and a link to documentation will appear.

I walked to it once from the Ranger Station on the southeastern end, but that was over 40 years ago.

I just reviewed that link and followed the Topographic map link to TopoQuest, searching for Isle Royale. It looks like an interesting resource.

For mapping, I really like Acme Mapper. Click the "layers" button in the top right to change between aerial, maps, and topos. I've used those to figure out hiking topography quite often.

I use Acme as well. It's a great mapping source but I was surprised by the the large amount of effort TopoQuest has put into cataloging various geographic features.
