Didn't find the portage trail. Lifted over several beaver dams instead. Pretty paddle but you'll work for it which is fair.

We couldn't even find this one. Fisher has it leading from Adams lake which we never found. We forced our way through the swampy channel and over a series of fairly new beaver dams. Rough going and no sign of a portage here.

Wasn't even necessary when I visited.

This portage bypasses a large beaver dam. We were able to liftover. Head all the way to the right after the portage exits to Adams lake. The Forest Service has cleared a way out of the swamp in that direction.

For us it was a 5 rod carry on the left side going into Adams.
