Portage Description:
I'd rate this portage average for carrying packs, but difficult if carrying a canoe. The short portage had a little bit of everything, small patches of mud, downed trees, plenty of rocks and up-and-down. The difficult part with a canoe is that the portage was very tight through the trees. Landing was easy on the Powell side, but rocky and difficult on the French side.

Lake after portage: French
Known campsites: 2
Lake Description:

French is a very beautiful lake, some tall hills, clear water. I did not fish it, but it is not known as a good fishing lake.
