be carefull on the south end...I was there in fall 2020 and water was low. Stay on the timbers and corduroy...step one foot off to the right when heading south, and you will be thigh deep in muck. Easily preventable!

The timbers on the south side of this portage where above the water and stable. We were able to pull the canoe along the side and through the muck. The portage itself is flat and easy but hot in the sun.

The south end isn't too bad but watch yourself as you go down the hill at the Polly end. If you don't have good gripping shoes, or take it really slow, you will end up on your butt.

The timbers on the southern end were more stable than the previous review encountered, so maybe we were there in lower water? Still, a pretty mucky start to the portage when heading north. The Polly side has a pretty steep hill right at the end, watch your step. Other than the landings, the portage itself is pretty standard.

Timbers that were put in by forest service are floating. Best not to actually walk on them or you'll end up hip deep in the marsh. We floated the canoes as far as possible and avoided the floating timbers.
