Like already said, flat, nice portage. A trail to the west close to Jack leads to an abandoned, shallow gold mine. Neat little adventure. We were able to take the rapids back to our campsite on Kelly.

Thanks to TuscaroraBorealis for the tip about the gold mine. The mine is only a stone's throw off the landing. If you are in the area, make time to check it out and be glad they didn't strike it rich and ruin the area you are enjoying! The portage itself is flat and easy.

Kelly end starts out as a rocky jumble, but the rocks soon give way to a very nice trail including a substantial length of boardwalk near the Jack Lake end. If you have time check out the old mine just west of the Jack lake landing
