Nice and flat to Ella Hall. Definitely doesn't see a lot of summer traffic, but it gets busy again in the winter. Past Ella Hall, the portage is frequently flooded so it can be tedious to press on.

I did this portage a long time ago, it was actually really nice. I think it was a road before the boundary waters were a thing. It certainly is long. Also, if your map says 4 mile portage, it really only goes to ella hall and mud, so please don't try going further. You will be sorely disappointed. And just sore, that would be a lot of portaging in one go.
