Recall this one having a small creek running near & through it making the open faced rock areas incredibly slick. Slow and steady is the way to go.

This portage is overgrown, with multiple down trees. It is IMPASSABLE. Not just very hard, but impassable. We reported it to USFS personnel who we ran into a couple of days later and they acknowledged that it is impassable

Some low muddy areas on this one, take it slow and easy and you should have no problems.

The trail was overgrow from little use. Take it slow and be careful with each step.
