Straight up hill from Crystal. Trail is still very easy to follow. Landing is just west of Crystal campsite.

A little overgrown, but pretty easy.

Hiked the portage. You can get to it from the nearby campsite on Crystal without paddling. Easy enough to follow up to Spaulding. Spaulding looked nice - I wouldn't have minded an extra day to explore it.

A little brushy, but not tough to follow. The north landing is grown over and the south is rocky.

Nothing serious, just a slightly overgrown up & over.
