The Horse holds enough water to be navigable in most conditions. There are a fair amount of well hidden random rocks and rocky areas that require a portage or lift over or some combination to get around. The section from the last portage on the Horse to the Basswood river can be very difficult in low water, mucky, thick and slow, difficult if the boat lacks enough water to float.
Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody’s going to die.
Thank you both for the information. I usually do not take rubber muck boots on my trips. I have water proof 9”boots. Normally that works out great but if I know I will be wading in water and muck I will bring the boots.
