Hustler to Oyster was long, but mostly downhill. I was glad we were headed that way. Take a breather and push through - the trail isn't hard, just long.

Rocky landings on both ends, but otherwise a long walk through the woods. During dry years, the beaver meadow is not an issue, just watch your step. Birding along this trail was fantastic. Felt much easier than the Lynx/Ruby portage.

portage was dry, no wading needed. it is long, we went from Oyster to Hustler and I got the second half with the canoe (the short straw). There are some steep sections but the trail is pretty good. Sat out a cold rain at the Hustler landing until we got chilled and decided moving was the better option (after lightning stopped).

A long walk. 3/4 way into the portage from Hustler, you will have to wade through a swamp. Its not deep, just stick to the middle and walk on the logs and avoid rocks.
