Portage Description:
The unnamed lake lies between Wicksteed and Pond Lake with Gratton to the south. The approach to the portage is difficult with many rocks just under the surface (at avg. water level)not really any good landing places. Once on the trail it goes vertical almost immediately with a short 30-50 yds. of very steep slope going up. The rest of the portage is generally down hill with a little up and down. The trail is an otherwise nice walk in the woods.

Lake after portage: Pond
Known campsites: None at all
Lake Description:

Pond Lake has a scenic area at it's south end with a narrow channel going into a small "pond". A nice place to stop for lunch. Also there is actually a portage leading to McAree. Both McKenzie and Fisher maps show it as a water connection.
