The Little Fork River flows north into the Rainy River.

Tell me more about this river's landscape, wildlife, and history.

Rapids are separated by long stretches of quiet water. None are very long, though some portages are difficult because of brush.

The Class I-II rapids are mostly in the upper part of the river.

Use caution at Hannie Falls, which is rated Class VI.
