Highway of a portage (mechanical). Used by motorboat people so, wide and flat - no obstacles (other than lots of traffic). Good put-in and take outs. South end has two portage paths that lead to the same place so don't worry - take either one tho the more westerly one is slightly shorter. Side paths for views of rapids.
