Landing on Little Rush side was a bit boggy (think that nasty smelling mud type bog) and the Rush landing requires you to walk out a bit if you're not looking to scrape your canoe up. The portage trail itself was a bit overgrown, but very easy to follow. Evidence of previous fires can be seen on the trail. (1/5)

Like most of the pin the chain, this one is a little brushy, but not too bad for us.

This one has a short steep hill with a winding and rocky path but, the rest of the portage is pretty straight forward.

The portage was overgrow and used little. Pretty flat and easy.

Relatively easy portage. Landing sites are OK, and somewhat hilly (particularly on the East side)
