Fisher shows this portage continuing across the creek, we just paddled out when we reached it. We were incredibly fortunate to encounter a young bull moose just 100 yards from the end of the portage. So cool! The creek into Roe was scenic and we were on our way. Portage was pretty overgrown, and turned into somewhat of a bushwhack, but not too bad.

From Roe Lake, watch for the small short finger running off to the left of the creek which leads up to the landing. The trail is full of muddy sections but, is fairly level after the initial short gradual climbs on either end.

Fisher Maps show that this portage continues on the opposite bank on the south end, it does not. The way it is shown here is correct. Simply head west down the creek and you will make it into Roe Lake
