Above Cedar River Flow

I'm thinking of heading to Cedar River Flow this weekend and exploring the Cedar River beyond. I was hoping someone could help me out with some info:
1) How far past the Carry lean-to can you paddle upriver?
2) Is it worth dragging the kayak up the first couple of low spots?
3) Are there any campsites up there along the river beyond the Carry lean-to?
4) Where would I pick up the trail to Carry Pond. Several years back I was up there and could not spot any trail (from the water) in the area that the USGS topo map shows a 4WD road.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Was up there 5-10 years ago and tried to go beyond carry lean-to with canoe, basically just a dragging endeavor, didn't make it too far before deciding to just use trail to cedar lakes instead. It was august so this time of year might be different.

The old road crosses the river about midway up the long straight stretch just before the lean-to, and you really have to look to notice it, as the grass & weeds along the banks conceal it well.
Or you can access it via a short footpath that begins at the end of this little backwater, which is shortly after passing the campsite up on the knoll near the big oxbow as you head upstream...

Here's what it looks like 0.6 miles upstream from the Carry lean to

Anytime.
I’ve been wanting to get back to that area for a while now & explore further up the Little Squaw Brook valley. Carry Pond is a nice little secluded spot with a decent campsite set back off the shore a bit...
