When I visited, the water was becoming quite low. The north end was shallow and mucky and required stepping out fifteen feet or so before the portage. The trail itself was lovely with lots of scenery. It then descends quickly right before the end to a muddy, slippery spot. All in all, not bad for the length.

Excellent landings on both ends. Coming from the EP; A moderate hill to negotiate before leveling out into an excellent well worn trail with little to no overhanging plants or shrubs. The trail skirts a few precipices along the way. The steepest dropping off about 15 feet. Fortunately the trail leans in the direction you'd want to fall if you did. Also in these areas there are long stretches of exposed granite. Making it seem like walking on a wilderness sidewalk. The trail drops back down to the river just above a huge, long standing, beaver dam.
