Tough footing. Fairly dry for us (thankfully). Nice portage overall. 2/5

Rocky landings on both ends. For the most part there is very little elevation change as the trail follows along the base of a steep cliff on the east side. There is, however, an impressive congregation of boulders of various sizes all along the way.

This is a neat path that passes along the West side of a cliff wall. The path is rocky and in wet conditions there is actually a stream running underneath the path. You can hear the water gurgling right beneath your feet. The Gun side of the portage can be pretty wet as the stream emerges and runs down the path into the lake. Overall the portage is not bad, just watch your step on the rocks.
