Obvious portage with little difficulty. Length is the only challenge.

This portage feels even longer than its 280 rods. The path doesn't get used much and is a bit overgrown which makes the rocky footing a bit of a challenge in places. There is a substantial elevation change, with Vernon-to-Swan being a bit steeper but shorter climb than Swan-to Vernon.
