Couldn't find the first portage & had to drag ourselves over the rocks, but we did find the second portage on the south side of the river. A few small downed trees, but it was passable. At the end of the portage there's some type of man made dam made of iron rebar & wood planks in the river that we still had to drag the canoe over. So plan on spending some extra time in the water if you go this route.

This is actually two portages. We didn't take either of them. We walked our canoes through rapids in knee-waist deep water. Don't do this unless you have closed-toed shoes on. Lots of large rocks in the water to smash a toe on. On the positive side, wading through the rapids felt great on a hot day.
