We were able to walk through the beaver pond to continue the portage, but it took a lot of scouting to figure out where the route went. We found it and eventually made it to Cherry. Too bad all the sites were full, but this route is really beautiful.

Short, but challenging. The Portage, starts out easy, but than you run into the Lake that Beavers have recently flooded and you have to float across it to get to the last part of the portage. There is a dry creek bed filled with rocks and very difficult to move the canoe down it.

There is a very small waterfall on Cherry near where this portage starts. A steep initial climb levels out to become a very nice trail. Then there's an old beaverpond. After crossing that the real fun begins. A fairly steep extremely rocky "gorge" with plenty of overhanging branches must be climbed before finally leveling out again near Lunar. There is an underground stream running below the "gorge".
