On this date there was a lot of dead fall on the trail, including trees that will knock the canoe off your shoulders if no ones guiding you. some mud, and it seemed longer than 220. the beach at Loon was a welcome surprise after a long hot and buggy walk

There is a great sandy beach on the Loon Lake side of this portage--perfect for swimming! If you are entering via Loon like we were, it can be difficult to find the portage because of the expansive beach. The portage goes through the tall grass at the far right side of the beach. Coming from Loon, the portage starts off fairly gradual but definitely has a lot of elevation change in the middle. Within 30 rods or so of Heritage Creek, there is a very steep section over a large rock--almost everyone in our group slipped trying to come down it. The portage was dry for us and not too treacherous. Overall, its length is the only thing that makes this difficult.
