oh f*ck this portage so hard. The bogs can be boggy as bogs can bog, and you'll likely lose a shoe trying to get through. Both my group and a different group had to tap out of this one a third of the way through from Trease because of the impassibility of the mud hole.

Might have just been the winter, but this portage was really rough. Brush encroaching the trail on every side, plenty of trees down on the trail, and lots of water crossings. We struggled through this one.

Besides the length - there are hills, rocks, branches etc. to contend with, but none of these proved to be anything too severe. It's all about how wet the mud hole is when you choose to cross.
