Slippery and Rocky landing on the Ottertrack side. Very short portage, with good fishing. 1/5.

Short scenic portage. Be sure to check the rapids for fish in the spring. There's also a trail running to nearby camp 1997.

Very short with lots of space on the Knife end. Ottertrack side is a shallow lagoon with a rock landing.

Very rocky landings on both sides. Not a difficult portage.

Ottertrack goes down to Knife along side a short and rocky waterfall, can notice significant differences between the weather on Knife from higher elevated lakes above
