Fairly easy. Steep part is short. Good landings on both sides.

Wonderful landings on both sides, Sag falls, and well maintained besides. This is a great portage along a popular route.

The portage is located very clearly on the West bank not the East. A little challenging in spots because of slanted bed rock.

There are actually 2 trails on the US side. A short but steep one for use in low to normal water levels, and a longer one for use during higher water. The short trail is quite steep and potentially treacherous, while the longer trail is more level though still rocky & a bit overgrown.

There is a portage of ~25 rods on the US side. It's easy to find, has decent landings and a good trail.
