The upper portion of this run (12 miles) is perhaps better suited for canoe tripping. (It may be possible to skip much of this if additional roads in the area are passable.) Upper Falls and Lower Falls are in last mile to lake. You then have a four mile paddle out on Lake Superior to return to the nearest road access.
If access is not possible at the listed put-in (if road is impassible in spring), accsss may be necessary from this point. This would add 13.3 miles of low gradient paddling.

Permits are not required for this reach.
The map and directions below will not accurately tell the tale of the shuttle for this. However, it should help with general logistics. Also, enter your home address (or other starting location) to get drive time, distance, and directions to the listed put-in.
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!
