Portage Description:
This one gave us some trouble. As well as some groups we met while in the park. If you have not been through here it is hard to know what to look for. Enter the marsh at the end of the lake as shown on the maps. After only 100mtrs or so, keep your eyes open on the right side for a mud wall that drops down the other side about 6 feet or so into a mud/weed pit. yes....unfortunately that is where you cross. You should see the trail on the other side. It is only about 20 mtrs across so light loads can be dragged. Put on your mud shoes and your shorts and try to step on as much heavy grass as possible to avoid sinking too far. You can try holding your breath but you won't make it....I tried. LOL. What a stench!!! Then it is a short, easy portage to the lake (Cole).
