Likely just relevant in the short term. When we went from hula to good Friday the last 20-30 rods of the portage had flowing water and some erosion was causing it to become quite rocky. Still very navigable but had to take it a little slower and watch your footing. By Sunday when we were leaving the water flow had stopped but it left things pretty rocky and muddy. Still not bad, just watch your footing.

It took us awhile to find this landing in the snow. Once we did, it wasn't too bad, just a steep drop into Good.

On the Hula end, a warm, mucky, leechy entrance to the lake.

Good walk through the forest. Saw a bear hundred feet or so from the Hula landing.

Well maintained trail. Fairly flat except for at the two ends.

Slow climb out of Good then down to Hula on a nice trail.
