easy up, easy down. nice elevation gain in both directions. not memorable, which can be a good thing.

Fairly easy portage given the distance. Be ready as this is very popular. Handful of well paced steps at the east end. Toward the middle there is are rock steps across some swampy areas. Lots of area to load and unload

Well traveled portage with some spots that have potential to turn muddy/boggy with some rain. Some elevation changes, but nothing too strenuous. Certainly more elevation gain going from Seagull to Alpine. 2/5

Well travelled and fairly flat, this portage doesn't present any technical challenges; it's just longish.

It was a cold, rainy day which made for a long crossing of Seagull. It was a bit rocky on the Seagull end for us. It was just good to get out and stretch!

this portage is fairly long. There are a few elevation changes but steps are present to help. a couple of minor mud holes. we crossed during a dry day. The Alpine side is a bit hard to find coming from Alpine Lake.

LONG - also, when it rains (when DOESN'T it rain here), there are standing puddles, and water drains down the trail to the Alpine side - while not particularly difficult terrain, the slippery wet nature of the trail can present additional problems - I slipped for the first time in 5 days on this portage, hurting my knee on a rock as I went down with our 2-man aluminum canoe on top of me - just slipped in some mud - in ideal weather, this nice wide well marked portage would be the cadillac of portages - but then again, WHEN is the weather "ideal" in the Boundry Waters!!

Not a difficult portage. Good landings at both ends. There s some mud but nothing crazy

Fairly easy going, only small elevation changes. The path does have some very muddy patches on the eastern half. The numerous apsens growing up following the fires create pretty sounds as the wind rustles their leaves.

A little long, but a easy going path.
