Portage Description:
The Maps has the portage improperly marked for starters. Where the maps have the portage marked follow the north shoreline back about 50 yds. right where the bay takes a small cut to the north is where the portage starts. The trail is poorly marked and goes over a lot of open rock so you must follow rock piles one to the other through portions. In other spots the trail follows through low wet overgrown areas so pay attention. questions mttorrey@hotmail.com
