This is an extraordinarily beautiful portage with moss-carpeted forests and marshy overlooks surrounding the trail. I had a canoe on my shoulders so I didn't get to see and enjoy it as well as my crew, but this was a highlight on the trip.

This is a TOUGH portage. If you're coming in from EP 19 this is the hardest portage, even compared to the initial 450 rod! Multiple downed trees 3-4 ft above the trail. A knee-deep creek crossing, mud, length, and bugs make this even harder. Easily a 5/5.

This one kicked my butt. About 1 mile in length, it starts with a climb, then drops down to skirt a bog/beaver pond. At one point a creek flows into the bog, the water was dark enough you couldn't see bottom. You need to carefully place each step on the rocky bottom, water was over my knees when I went. Numerous trees down that required removing pack or dismounting canoe (I double portaged), I think there were 4 different times. Without the trees, it would have been a long, medium difficulty portage, but the constant climbing over, crawling under bumps the difficulty up to hard for me. Did not appear to be an often used portage.
