Well used. Not as muddy as some claim (and we were there 1 week after ice-out). Long but relatively easy. Have to cross Cache River about half way through portage. Second half of portage (after crossing river) is fairly repetitious uphill/downhill until you reach Cache Lake. The trail is easy to follow.

This was one crazy portage. I packed for a 20 day trip. And this was the first 1/4 so my pack was heavy. Terrain was so wet and unruly, had to leap frog making three trips every leap. Took me all day and one morning to finish this insane stretch. Rained the entire time. By far the toughest portage of my life and I do this a lot. Maybe it's better in the summer and/or not so wet. But otherwise plan carefully if you wish to use this portage.

Extremely long and tough portage with numerous bogs and areas with poor footing. You will need to use your canoe to ferry across the Cache river in the northern third of the portage

This was probably my least favourite portage of the entire trip (36 days). It is long, but the mud, obstacles, and bugs on it made it very difficult. Also, there is a spot in the middle where you have to wade through a 2-3 ft deep creek.
