This one definitely has some challenges, but I guess I was expecting worse. Is it harder than average? Sure. But coming in from Brant, I still felt fresh and didn't think it was awful.

This portage is a brute. There are some serious hilly sections as well as rocky and muddy footing. The brush has closed in the trail quite a bit so as to barely let a canoe clear. As others have said, it is definitely a challenge in either direction.

My partner and I aptly named this one 'the rock climb portage'. Very rocky, uphill both ways, slipped a few times.

A challenging portage is an understatement. Tricky footing on the downhill portions. Outfitter said its longer than indicated on the maps. Much harder for me (at 64) than many other much longer portages I've done in recent years.

A fairly challenging trail. Some signifcant elevation changes, rocks, twists, turns, & narrow in spots. The Gotter end will almost certainly be a mucky entry in/out of the canoe
