This one is tricky depending on the water level. 2021 was a dry year, and we basically paddled to the far south side of section 3 pond and looked for the portage takeout on the west side as shown on the map. We couldn't find any portage access in the swamp so we carefully navigated the stream toward Slim. We were able to navigate 2/3 of the way down the stream before the water levels became too low for the canoe. We exited west and found the portage along that side of the pond. From this vantage it was clear there are multiple takeouts on the west side for the portage, but they are not always very visible. Basically, paddle as far south as you can and then look for the portage trail on the west side of the stream.

Very rocky. Footing is tricky. It seems like a natural spring comes out at the Section 8 side because the water is so cold. Lots of mushroom varieties along the way. 2/5
