(visited by Ross Finlayson)

30-Jul-2014 -- Driving south from North Bay to Toronto, I took a 25 km (each way) detour to visit this relatively easy confluence point. The confluence point lies about 350m south of Thompson Road (gravel). From looking at satellite imagery beforehand, I found a path (an old road cut) - starting at [45.00384,-79.00221] - that took me most of the way towards the confluence point, leaving me less than 100 metres of 'bushwhacking' to reach the point. It turned out, however, that the trees in this area are quite thinly spaced, so the confluence point would be quite easy to hike to, even if you weren't following the path.

If, as I did, you visit this confluence point during the summer, be sure to apply plenty of bug spray. Numerous hungry mosquitos stalked me as I hiked to and from the point.
