The rangers will likely get it clear before summer, but it was quite the winter for this portage. There were a dozen trees down along the length which really made it tedious getting in. All in all though, it's not too difficult as one would expect from an EP.

Pretty easy portage to start a trip with. There were a few muddy spots, but overall it's a pretty standard portage. Easy 10-15 minute walk.

This is a pretty standard portage - slightly downhill toward the river on a clearly defined trail. The landing has plenty of space to get setup for your travels. There is no restroom at the parking lot end of the portage.

It took us about 10 minutes to walk this portage in 1 direction. The whole thing is fairly level with some rocky areas. When you've reached the planks, you're almost there!
