I just walked my canoe through the chute. View of cabins from the north side so it's a uniquely quick change from "civilization" to "wilderness"

Just paddled through this one. Lower water you may need to walk it through or take the very short portage.

Agree, portage not really necessary. Should be a paddle thru, or at worst a pull thru.

Water flows from Pine into McFarland. Lakes were high this year and no true portage needed, but submerged boulders made for a bit of a challenge along with the strong current. We paddled this in both directions over a few days. We cleared it without hitting rocks once. Other times we nailed a rock and had to scoot off it carefully, or once I simply walked the canoe up the west side of the portage. Most paddlers will have no issues. The "channel" is straight through the middle. Just hard to see with an 18.5 foot barge and four people in it! :)
