Portage Description:
I recommend bypassing this portage by paddling the connecting channel. It is usually doable except in very high water years. 3 small sets of rapids are encountered though the only really noticeable one is the last where the water flows through a barely canoe width constriction. Two moderately strong paddlers in coordination will make it in a couple of minutes.

The portage is not bad but paddling past it is even better.
