Marshy, mucky, messy portage with narrow landings. This one will keep you humble.

Overgrown but, easily followed. Several low spots, including a tiny brook and a short boardwalk. A few long stretches of muck and some elevation changes too. In and of itself this portage isn't terrible but, consider that if you're doing it fully loaded you've committed to doing the 4 portages between Long Island & Banadad (to camp legally) with only reasonably short paddles in between.
