Even after the fire, it still feels like walking up to a town here between the wide grade, old civilization remnants, and the pine plantations. Had a good educational conversation about Pagami with some folks in the parking lot afterwards.

You could almost drive your car through the first quarter (or so) of this portage until it starts its slow descent to the lake. There are some old cement footings of the abandoned town (Forest Center) near the mid point of the trail. Nice log stair step landing at the lake with a mostly pebble rock put in.

Easy, level trail thru what is now burned area from pagami creek fire. Beach at the put in is great with plenty of room to stage multiple canoes. Sandy, flat and wide. The parking lot side has plenty of parking and you can explore the historic tomahawk logging town area.
