This can be a muddy one, and the landings at either end are a bit rocky but a good chunk of it is nice open, flat trail. The last 1/3 of the portage as you approach Caribou is all downhill and can be a bit rocky. As you go from Clearwater to Caribou, make sure to stay left at the first Y, but stay right at the second Y. The second Y is pretty well marked with birch logs blocking the wrong trail.

Going from Caribou to Clearwater, we made the right at the first T intersection, thinking we were at the T on this map. NO! We ended up behind the campsites on the north shore of Caribou, which was pretty depressing since I was marveling at how easy that stretch was! Lesson learned: Don't cross the birch bark logs people have placed on the spur trails that aren't actually part of the portage! As for the actual portage, it was pretty muddy, and uphill from Caribou to the actual T

Definitely the shorter option of the two portages from Clearwater into Caribou. The last half is as simple as it gets. 2/5

A little mucky, but not bad at all. A nice first portage from Entry #62.

Up and down portage that had 4-5 muddy pools along the way. Muddy landing at Caribou as well.

There is a third fork on this trail that leads to the north campsites on the lake. Adds about 40 rods to this portage if you take that route.
