Heading toward Alpine this was a very easy portage with nice scenery along the way. I really enjoyed traveling through this forest that has been recovering for 14 years.

As stated a few times, this portage provides some nice views of the falls and is very approachable. Initial climb out of Jasper, but nothing extreme. 2/5

This was a pretty little portage. I was bringing a pretty green crew with me. Neither of the two guys I brought along had been on a BWCA canoe trip before, so this was a testing moment. After a decent paddle across Seagull and the jump across Alpine, we hit this portage. There's not a lot of staging ground on the Alpine side, and the Jasper side was quite flooded when we were there in Spring. Stop and admire the falls if you have time and can survive the flies/mosquitoes.

This could be one of my favorite portages. The waterfalls were roaring. The trail had some difficult spots but nothing too hard.

Overall a pretty decent portage. Only initial climb out of Alpine is a bit steep. Very scenic rapids along the trail.

This portage was quite busy, a lot of people heading to, or coming from, Seagull Lake. There is room to take a break on the Jasper Lake high end. Things can be tight on the Alpine Lake end if more than 2 canoes start piling up. From Jasper lake, make sure to stick to the east side as you approach the portage. Immediately past the landing, the water rushed down the vigorous falls down to Alpine Lake, and you don't want to get sucked down into that! We had to hang out in some reeds on the east side, while we waited for groups to clear out of the landing.

Short but rugged, the best part is it runs along the Jasper Falls and is loaded with blueberries in season.
