Be sure to have help at the Fourtown side of the portage. It is steep with poor footing. It is best to have two people to bring the canoe down to the lake. The rest of the portage is very scenic.

Seemed longer than the description. Appeared to be another landing on the northern end that was blocked by deadfall, resulting in a portage that felt closer to 30 rods than 14 rods. The length still makes it pretty easy, but it is a rocky, hilly portage.

I wouldn't call this an easy portage - short, yes. Very funky putting in and taking out, bony - no, beyond bony. This thing is just all rocks and they are steep, unbalanced, plentiful and slippery. Not a good portage.

This one is easy except for the landing on the North end. There are two landing options; both a little tricky. Heading North, there is a trail that goes left to the creek, and I would recommend this one most of the time. In high water you may get wet feet, but the footing is solid and safe. To the right, another trail goes up a bit then down a steep rock face to a landing along the East side of the creek.
