We went from Rose to Rove, it was a good distance to be sure, but the terrain itself is pretty darn easy, I thought the spur at the end was going to feel like forever and get super tough, but it really was not too bad

We were going Daniels to Rove. I'm fairly certain that after the split, this "portage" is part of the BRT. We never found the actual portage as marked on my McKenzie map, but the route we followed was very close to the BRT markings on my map. No matter, it still gets you to Rove, but you have to climb a fair ways up before the decent into Rove. We were single-portaging. It is doable, but it wasn't easy.

This is a very long portage. Took us 3 1/2 hours from Rose to Rove. We single portaged the flat part which is more than half, but we had to take several breaks. Once to the last part we had to double portage the remainder. The trail from the Daniels spur on to Rove was a lot of up and down and rough terrain.

This portage was awful. Prepare yourself mentally if you want a fighting chance.

The Daniels spur is quite easy but, once you turn off towards Rove lake the trail gets significantly more difficult. This section (of the Long Portage) has a little bit of everything. The old growth trees along the way keep things interesting.This other section of the 'Long portage' (Rose to the Daniels lake spur) follows an old railroad bed. Consequently, it's an extremely flat trail. There is a small creek that parallels the trail, so there is the potential for flooding in wet times or if the local beavers feel the need.
