Much easier in the dry summer months. I have crossed this several times through the last decade. In the wet months we stump jump and lined the canoes with the packs across. In the dry months, the mud is firm enough to walk. In between these times try to keep your feet moving and stay in the "waterbed" like grass on the sides of the path. Also be aware of the Y in the southern half of the portage. It can be confusing and put you back on the same no name lake you came from...

Portage crosses a swamp midway. There are only a few slimy rotting logs to balance on while crossing the swamp If you step off you'll be in waist deep sphagnum swamp water. I know, cuz I did step off.
