The portage does reroute northeast at the east end due to a marsh. It's good that you'll always cross west-to-east first, because finding the portage coming from Little Bass would be nigh impossible without recognizing where you came out. Also, ticks; each time we crossed we had a dozen or more ticks on us, unlike almost every other portage we've done.

East end (Little Bass Lk) actually re-routes to the northeast slightly, apparently due to an un-navigable mucky area caused by lower water levels.
