This river is one continuous mess. I don't think a single portage was marked correctly on my map. If one goes to where the northern landing is marked, there is a nicely cleared old logging road that one could portage all the way back to the landing, and perhaps that would be quicker. There is a shorter portage on the north side of the river that leads around the rapids.

We actually didn't even find this portage. Rather there were a couple beaver dams that we pulled our canoes over and one maybe 5 rod portage. Not sure what happened to Portage #227... Our method would probably only work in the spring/early summer as long as the two dams are there.

My first trip to the Boundary Waters. we used this as our exit point and ended up taking the right portage at first but, if you aren't careful and take the wrong path it brings you for a LONG, LONG walk all the way to the parking lot. Ended up making a 550 rod portage instead of a 62 rod and a 189 rod.
