Water levels are low in 2021. I watched a group walk the canoes up the river, but that wasn't in the cards for us with kids in the canoe. This was a quick up and over with a rocky, shallow landing on the northern side.

We were able to paddle up the rapids, but it would have been tough with all of our gear. The portage is very short and easy. We saw several groups with gear try to paddle up the rapids and fail. If the water level was higher I think it would have been quite a bit easier.The portage is just to the left of the rapids when approaching from the South.

I wasn't able to paddle up it on a kid trip, but it would def. be possible with 2 adults. No problems going down. The portage is short, or you could line your boat if you dont want to unload.
