Contrary to earlier comments, it is not possible to paddle directly into Reflection Lake. A 15-20 rod portage is required due to a beaver dam, the easiest route is to just rock hop on the creek bed up to the beaver dam.

I couldn't find a portage, but it's not needed. The water route is definitely doable. It requires an up and over the dam, but Reflection is not difficult to get to. Don't try to take the creek farther West to get directly to Sedative. It narrows to less than two feet wide. This creek is very passable.
