I did that bushwhack about 30 years ago with MDB and our 5 year old daughter.
It’s fairly short with open hardwoods, doesn’t get much easier.
However, you’ll need to work your way upstream to find a shallow enough spot to cross the Jessup.
It’s much easier and more fun to paddle downstream and ditch the boat at the bony section. Hike along the right bank from there on an informal path. There may be a beaver dam or two, it varies from year to year. Even in the driest summers there’s enough water to make it to the bony section.
Return trip upstream is easy too, current is slack.
Good luck and be sure to post some pics.
Btw that bushwhack was described in the Barbers McMartin series discover the adirondacks
