This one makes you work a little more than others in the area. Easier, but elevation makes it memorable.

Several trees down or partially blocking the trail to limbo through with the canoe up top. We found a pink lady slipper orchid on the side of the trail!

The Frost end was a little steep. The footing was tricky towards the river side. Some trees had gone down in the middle of the portage and just the wrong height - couldn't go over, couldn't go under, and couldn't go around. I had to slide the canoe on top of the tree, duck under, and grab the canoe again. I assume this will be cleared out soon.

This was a beautiful portage with nice trees, rocks, and piles of snow. Some tough footing, but the scenery made it all worth while.
