Be careful coming through here! There are some rocky portions for sure. Also the exit to the North can be a treacherous paddle if the water is really cranking. There are some beautiful Red Pine on this path that I enjoyed on the carry through.

Slippery when wet. The same rock wall that creates these impressive falls must be negotiated on the portage as well. One deadfall issue. Take your time and keep your feet rubber side down.

Decent length, combined with some elevation changes and tricky footing in a couple places combine to make this portage a bit of a challenge. This can be a busy spot and a bit of a bottleneck as the only way in and out of this section of the Quetico.
