Easy up and over portage with numerous vantage points for waterfall pictures and appreciation.

All previous comments were accurate with our visit. Shorter, easy, wide, sandy landings on both sides, closer to falls than indicated and take pictures - it's pretty.

Eastern landing is closer to the falls than the maps indicate. Easy up and over. Take time to enjoy the falls.

A nice up and over. Take some time to enjoy the falls while you are here. The gorge is lovely.

The portage is a simple up and over between the two eastern most waterfalls. There's a international border marker at the top of the hill. Very scenic area between 3 waterfalls.

Eastern landing is pretty close to the falls. Good views of the falls, hilly but otherwise easy trail.

Doesn't get much easier than this. Poorly drawn on this map - the trail is much closer to the falls. A great spot for photos.

This one was very busy everytime we got to it. Very nice take out from the East end. be more careful on the lower side of the falls. The water was high, and this made it hard to get into the canoe, My partner took a spill into the drink! Very Pretty! 2 out of 10
