This one isn't difficult but definitely on the longer side (relative to Sylvania). The landing on the Kerr side is nasty and not fun, have to get in / get out on floating logs, no real place to step. Although there is a nicer area of long grass that we have used to enter on Kerr on the right hand side of the landing. Landing on the West Bear side is also kind mucky but definitely not as bad as the Kerr side. Overall this portage can be kinda annoying if having to double portage but if not, its not bad at all.

Going from Kerr to West Bear easier than West Bear to Kerr. A large tree in the landing on West Bear has created a new trail to an alternative put in spot. No problem when putting in to West Bear, but slightly tricky to find when taking out of West Bear. Kerr side easy to find.
