The Horseshoe Lake end is very deep. The portage is short but very rocky and somewhat difficult for that reason.

Short portage. Lots of rocks on the Vista side of the portage. Definitely an area to watch the canoe. The Horseshoe side drops pretty quick. Current wasn't moving too fast, but after a strong storm I would imagine it would be a factor to have to contend with. 2/5

This portage was basically a river. No more than 10 feet of it was above water. The Vista side is a bunch of rocks slightly under water and very slippery. The Horseshoe side was beautiful with a waterfall to look at while the other boat in our group unloaded.

Flat, but very rocky. I remeber loosing my footing a few times. Good shoes would be helpful here.
