Shallow landings and an easy enough walk through the woods.

When finding from Morgan the land seems to be a bit more difficult to find, but trust the map and it will show up. Overall, very easy portage that shouldn't cause any issues. 1/5

Unremarkable portage with good footing and not much elevation change. Put-in and take-out points are easy to find and easy to negotiate. The Morgan end of this portage is a bit muddy but there are logs to walk on alongside a channel for the canoe.
