Huh. May be steep. No kidding! With the fresh snow, this portage felt like a ski hill. It was my turn with the canoe, and I ate it more than once. Ended up dragging it over the snow to get up one of the hills after a good fall. Real pretty all the same.

This trail climbs VERY steeply out of Vernon! The rock face can be slippery when wet. There is a spur trail (NE side) at about the halfway point leading back to an enchanting waterfall. This waterfall can also be reached from camp #973.

Watch your step as there is great elevation change on this portage. Be sure and check out the falls to the east.
