DISCLAIMER - This description is about the 80 rod portage from Forest Road 200 to Astrid Lake. I did not do the 120 rod portage from Forest Road 200 to Maude Lake. It's a slightly downhill jaunt of 80 rods. Along the portage, you will see many massive red, white, and jack pines. A little boardwalk goes over a small brook about halfway thru. This trail is free of rocks or roots - about as easy of an 80 rodder as you'll ever find going to the lake. The landing is wide and flat with a beautiful white pine there to greet you. The portage is a little challenging going back to the road as you're going uphill, but not excruciating by any means. Very scenic portage.
