First off, do not attempt to "shoot the rapids" here (as our outfitter had suggested was entirely possible), the first drop is simply too big for anyone but the most expert paddlers, and beyond that it is extremely rocky/shallow, and your kevlar canoes will get chewed up. From the Sea Gull Lake (south end) of the portage, there are actually 2 paths out. We took the one to the "right" (to the NE), which actually empties into the adjacent campground (the campsite we walked through happened to be empty at the time). Inadvertently, this make the portage much easier! You just walk along the campground road and re-enter the portage on a well defined path just north of campsite #19. Much much easier than struggling along the poorly defined, rocky and rooty shoreline path. Also be aware, this portage is not long, only 35 rods as indicated on this site, but some maps (such as our McKenzie Maps) indicate this is a long 88 rod portage.

A tough portage in places - steep and rooty.

A little hilly, but not too long.
