Not bad through here. Updated: Visited on a staff training trip in 2021. The nearest campsite had a flagpole rigged up. They had a legitimate flag flying from the top of tree. Odd. This valley has a neat feel to it and saves quite a bit of time heading over this portage than paddling around.

Easy up and over. Nice shortcut to the border.

It's a little hidden on both sides, but you will know when you find it. Landings are fine but not great. Not a difficult portage at all. We did a loop from SAK, taking the 50 rodder to the NE of here into Knife, then back out to SAK via this portage. It's a nice little circle and plenty of great fishing along the way. Campsite #1437 makes for a very nice lunch stop, if available.

Easy to find. Wide trail. Pretty walk through the woods.

The portage itself is very simple and easy to spot coming from Knife. 1/5

Nothing serious but it does climb up to SAK. In my opinion the 51 rod portage just to the NE is a much more user friendly/level trail that gets you in/out of the same areas.

A little hard to spot, but if you find the open rock face for the campsite, you'll find the portage right next to it. Not difficult at all.

Very easy portage just up over a small hill. It was in good shape.
