The portage is not bad at all .... pretty wide and fairly accessable. We were there in the spring, so there was a ton of deadfall covering the trail.
I will say this .... that's almost 3km of non-paddling ..... not how I wanted to spend my time with my canoe.
Like I stated earlier .... I like the open side up!
I do not wish to be disturbed - but I can't help it!
