Portage Description:
One of the most deceptive portages. You see a small lake midway through the portage and you think you are done. But, you are only half done. I portaged during a rain and had mud up to my calves in places. The feeling of finishing that portage in one walk is unmatched. Like finishing a marathon. It feels great! Just make sure never to do it again.

Lake after portage: Ensign
Known campsites: 8+
Lake Description:
