Short and pretty simple. It can be muddy as you enter the stream.

This was an amusing portage. It ends up in a creek section where we ran into a beaver out checking out the spring weather. The trail itself isn't so bad.

Fun challenge from Wind bay to Indiana - a well constructed bever dam about 5/6 ft. tall at the end of the marsh route (headed into the pond SE of Indiana) made it interesting! Muddy/messy getting near and over the dam but definitely worth the experience

We only glanced at it, but it sure looked like a good challenge. Steep descent out of Indiana, and a bit of a mess on the river side of things.
