A short section (a mile or less) of steep gradient exists as this drops its final way to Lake Superior. While there may be good gradient upstream of the listed put-in, it is generally too wooded up to be worth the bother. This is one of the last runnable watersheds before the Grand Portage Indian Reservation (where you may be trespassing if found setting shuttle and running the rivers).
It ***may*** be possible to put in up this far to get a little warm-up before the final steeper gradient (and get more nearly a full mile of river to run), but it may not be worth it.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
