As others mentioned, an easy portage, though it is a bit tiring at the end of a trip when paddling against a significant headwind on the river. Slippery when wet!

Portage from parking lot. Wide portage down hill from parking lot. Very slippery on sloped rock area.

Pretty easy portage, well maintained, well traveled portage. Some slippery rocks to cross when wet. Downhill going in. 2/5

This is a fairly easy portage when you are fresh and eager to hit the water. It's tiresome coming back up on the way out- especially when carrying two canoes and two packs for your tired-out group of rookies. There are a few logs to step over and the grade is fairly steep, but overall the footing is good. There are some beautiful ladyslippers along the trail to admire on the way back up for your next load.
