Portage Description:
If you have arrived at this portage after completing the two from Seagull to Grandpa and Grandpa to Roy than this portage will be a walk in the park. It is tricky to find. You have to go the northeastern most bay in Roy Lake. There you will see what looks like a earth dam that leads into a valley. This valley connects Roy with Saganaga. There is a small stream that runs the length of the portage and in a period of high water this portage could be a little treacherous. Land you canoe on the earth dam and look to the southern side of where you a sitting and you will see the trail. From Roy to Saganaga it is all down hill. The trail is easy, just some muddy slick spots, tricky turns, and a small stream crossing. The end at Saganaga is a little muddy and swampy, but after what you have been through on the Seagull and Grandpa portages it is nothing.
