This one will get your heart pumping. The Horseshoe end is a little deep and rocky and has a steep uphill for about 1/4th the way across. After that it levels out and drops slightly towards the Gaskin end. The Horseshoe side also has a signficant drop to the north side of the trail so be careful on the rocks on the trail.

Easy footing on an up-and-over portage. This trail is in good shape.

Portage is easier from Gaskin to Horseshoe than vice-versa. Some very old white pines and cedars along the portage.
