This is a pretty standard up and over portage. The Duncan landing was a bit rocky and we encountered multiple groups. Although it is always good to quickly move off a portage and keep it clear rather than lingering at the landings, that is particularly true at this busy spot.

Your basic up and over along a good trail. Rocky landings on both ends.

Short, easy portage that I have only hiked over in the winter. Pulled an ice house and fishing gear easily.
