Saw Ben's review of this portage so we decided to try it for ourselves. The landing in Portage Bay was mucky, but we got the packs out without getting too messy. This was the second VERY dry year in a row and the entire portage was dry and not very muddy. Reminded me of a Quetico portage more than anything else. Trout lake north landing was decent. Nice short cut to the west end of the lake...which seems to get less traffic than the east side of the lake.

This portage was only shown on my National Geographic map, none of the others, so I was skeptical of it existing. However, it is here and apparently well-used. The Portage Bay end is in a swamp. The landing is narrow and on solid ground, but shortly thereafter the trail goes through the mud. Then the trail climbs into the woods, and it is solid and easy to follow. The north landing is rocky. Good way to skip going around Windy Point on a windy day.
