a lengthy portage that intersects with the BRT. Make sure to stay on the correct trail :)

Coming out from West Pike there is a prolonged gradual climb. At about the intersection of the Bordr Route Trail it mostly levels off the rest of the way to Clearwater lake. Near the Clearwater landing on the north side of the trail is a lone monsterous white pine. Also the landing on the Clearwater end is a pretty spot. Also the Border Route trail up to Gogebic would be rated 9-10 IMHO. As a side note; there is a shortcut up/down to/from Gogebic from West Pike. It comes out on the south shore of West Pike and this section definitely rates a 10 as it is almost all straight up/down.
