there is an alternate portage between Attean and Holeb Ponds that goes over a shoulder of a mountain. Sometimes its easier than slogging the bog bridge when that is under two feet of water.
The portage is 1.25 miles.
I was thinking of Temagami..same distance same ascent and descent. I would not call either short.
And Wabakimi which does have an average port distance of 300 m often has 30 blowdowns over that distance. Climbing over trees you need a pack that hugs your body and won't swing. (I have done that..to much hilarity..a Duluth Pack got to swinging..it was loaded with tools. I had to jump from side to side along a flooded portage and the last swing launched me into the alders..face down)
Well you asked for experiences!
