An easy to find portage that sees lots of traffic. The south landing is a sand/gravel beach. Pretty flat trail though a couple muddy spots if it has rained recently. The bugs were awful on the north side near the ranger cabins. We took the left fork in the trail since it seemed less overgrown and wound up walking right through the cabin complex. There's a good put-in between the cabin and the boathouse here. It feels strange to see cabins and picnic tables this far into the BWCA!

It's always cool to see the old ranger cabins, especially with thinking how far they had to travel to get there. The old LLC trail used to run from the Echo trail making for quite the hike if someone came in that way. Also crazy to see the flooding in 2021 and how different this area looked. The bay is shallow and weedy at the end of the season. The portage is practically a sidewalk.

An interesting portage with a fork at the end if walking south to north. Take the path to the right. There's a ranger station at the north side (left path) which isn't marked on some maps.
