    There are several open water sections to worry about. Particularly the upper end of the loop including sections between Finn and Pointer Lake. The most dangerous section is before, at and after Spot Lake. Two things you need to worry about at Spot Lake: 1.) There is open water in several locations, so you really need to keep your speed up, your eyes peeled and stay close to shore if possible. 2.) You really need to know where you are going in terms of enter and exit points, which coincidently are some of the dangerous parts of Spot Lake.
