Rose Falls Trip


The trip to Rose Falls over the Stairway Portage is one of the most popular in the eastern BWCA, and for good reason.  An easy day trip, start at West Bearskin (our outfitters is on East Bearskin) and paddle to Duncan lake.  At the end of Duncan you reach the famed Stairway Portage.  The portage consists of about seventy steps, and it was originally built as a CCC project.  The portage can be grueling on the way back, but the spectacular views overlooking Rose and the falls themselves are well worth it.
