Portages in Quetico Provincial Park

Alphabetical List of Portages in Quetico Provincial Park (sorted by lake being portaged from)

The landing for the Stuart River portage.

Portage ratings do not take the length of the portage into account, only the difficulty of the terrain. So keep that in mind. Some portages in the BWCA are actually paddled (i.e. where two lakes are connected by a creek or river). A portage is defined here as "a connection between two lakes or other bodies of water".

Portage Ratings:
Easy: A flat trail that is wide with good footing all the way. (No liftovers [beaver dams] or obstructions and little to no current if paddling.)

Average: May be some steep areas, rocky sections and/or wet areas. (A beaver dam liftover and maybe light current with a few boulders to dodge.)

Rugged: Lots of steep, overgrown and/or wet sections. Some uncleared blowdown. (Low water areas that require walking canoe, liftovers, muddy, some minor rapids and boulders to paddle through.)

Bushwhack: Unmaintained portage or no portage at all. (If paddling, this means bushwhacking around rapids or through log-choked streams because there is no portage.)
