It is a scramble over big boulders in places, so hauling a kayak might be hard at times, but doable. My wife took that trail rather than ride in a raft through the hole and thought there was a better chance of getting hurt on the trail than in the boat.
If you portage on the right, please don't walk on the ditch wall between the river and the mining ditch. Walk in the ditch water if need be. The claim owner is tired of the ditch wall being broken down and tends to tolerate boaters so far... I agree, walk the railroad.
