Tuscarora to Round (it would be reversed going into the BWCAW). It seems to go on forever. Boggy areas, up and down, but mostly looooong. You keep thinking "Are we there YET?"
Canoe to Pine. Starts straight up and it's up and down, rocky, and exhausting. But at the end, you follow the trail to Johnson's Falls and it's all worth it.
A few others that are no picnic are Clearwater to East Pike, Horseshoe to Vista (SHARP rocks), and I believe Ottertrack to Ester that is almost a mountain climb with a canoe. Some think the Stairway portage is tough coming in from Rose to Duncan, but the 4 or 5 times I've done it were not that bad. WW
