Shown at 375M on the hardcopy maps. In 12 trips to the north country, this is the worst portage I have ever experienced. It took some real detective work to follow as the area was burned and trees blown down and brush grown up. Nobody comes through this way, I do not recommend it. the route to the north between Talon and Dragon HAS to be better than this! it was basically a 375m bushwhack through the bog, the alders, and through the burned forest, only knowing we were on a "portage" by a little scrap of faded surveyor's ribbon here or there, maybe a cut branch, maybe a path that also could be just a moose track. The west end is marked by a beaver pole stuck in the mud of the bog. The east end...hardly discernable. If you take this, you will have to look closely for clues to find and follow the portage, we broke a LOT of alder twigs just so we could find our way back for the second load. Again, you might just avoid this route altogether, I will! It is doable but it is time consuming and some folks might not appreciate the adventure and physical effort needed to get through the seasonably shallow stretch, the obstructions, and pulling, pushing, dragging, and carrying the canoe through this stretch between boomerang and Dragon lakes.

From the Dragon Lake side this portage isn't a huge deal - although there's some heaving and pulling to do over swampy sections. From the Boomerang Lake side it can be very difficult to find the start of the portage. It took us 2 hours to find it the first time. :)
