Portage is not bad. It's fairly rocky but manageable. Nice boardwalks in muddy areas. It took about 14 minutes from one end to the other going northwest. We had to make two trips due to the amount of gear and my husband's bad knees.

The location for the start of this portage on the river end is wrong! It actually starts just a little south at the tip of the tiny finger in this bay. There is a false (old???) landing where this & most maps indicate, along with an accompanying trail into the woods that eventually peters out. The actual trail has some elevation & muddy spots along the way but, overall it's a pretty decent path.

no big barriers or struggles here. i have run into trees down across the trail but that happens. find this portage at the end of the bay without too much difficulty.
