Every time I make this portage the water is lower and the trail is longer, otherwise an easy flat portage. When the water is low you may have to make additional portages on the river near the narrows before Mudro Lake.

Easy portage to the EP landing. If the water is low, drag your canoe until you can float in the river channel. The bottom is hard sand.

Easy first/last portage. The river into Mudro is hiding some rocks that would be trouble in lower water.

Super easy graveled path out with wide sandy put in. However, it was way further than we expected on the far side of Mudro down a narrow river and across a marsh. Fisher F-9 map is deceiving regarding where the pick up is located or perhaps we were just super tired and wanted to go home. Just keep paddling and avoid the many hidden rocks in the narrow stream.
