This was one of the most difficult portages I've been on in the half dozen times I've been to the BWCA. Steep elevations, large rocks/boulders, mud (it had rained the night before), and sheer length made it downright hellish. There was a beaver dam halfway through, which made us have to ferry our canoes across and wade through chest deep water. We took about 80 minutes to complete this, and were completely beat afterward.

Walked it for future reference as day trip while staying on Davis. Longer and a bit harder than the Southern Davis portage, elevation issues about the same as the south, a lot more issues with rocks and streams though.

Quite a challenge. It had rained quite a bit before we hit this portage so it was full of water hazards. Most were just mud holes, but a few were deep sections of streams with rocks or logs or nothing to step on. We were headed toward Kiskadinna. Long, hilly, treacherous footing. We loved it.
