Been through here multiple times. Fairly easy, straight forward portage. There is a segment in the middle where you will be wet-footing in rainy years. In dry years, count on a mucky push into the river. Nice moosy area on the river side.

Some of the big boulders on the path make travel difficult. There was a strip about 50 yds. long that was shin deep in water and mud. My nephew saw a moose and 3 deer in this area.

UPDATE as of 8/3/16: The flooded portion in my previous review was now only about ankle deep. ORIGINAL COMMENT: Swampy and mucky on the River side, we just pushed through it but the heavier guys in our group had to scramble along the shore line a bit to get to a spot they could launch their canoes. Also, there was a flooded portion of the portage about half way, but it was only about knee deep. There are a few large boulders to climb over.
