River Description


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.
