Very easy to notice when on Ham. Enjoyable because you actually enter the BWCA on this portage. Slightly uphill, with a few stairs, going into Cross Bay. 2/5

Short portage with minor hill. You can take a picture with the "Entering BWCA" sign about 1/4 way through.

This portage is easy, nice take out on Ham Lake side. Put-in is OK, a bit muddy perhaps. The portage is further west than is shown on some maps. Just start looking for it a bit earlier, you will see it.
