The portage is next to the stream. According to locals, the stream may be passable during high water season in spring. However, in late June, we were unable to paddle through. The portage is a strenuous feat. It is rocky, slippery, steep and narrow at places.

Steep entry with water flowing down. Muddy and downed trees. Doesn't seem to get much use.

The "stream" was not the portage. There is a trail to your left (as you face the stream). Have to climb up the rocks then take winding path. Not a very easy portage for first timers, and difficult to find (coming from Jackfish Bay).

Was not a portage. Couple beaver dams that we were able to paddle over.
