Coming from the unknown lake side to Grey... two choices for landings on the unknown lake side that meet halfway just before the marsh. Conditions were dry so the marsh wasn't horrid but you can expect to sink at least to your knees. From the junction, there is a single trail to Grey. If you are coming from the Grey side, when you get to the junction, it is easy for your party to get separated if individuals take separate paths.

This is a difficult and long portage through a swamp. The beginning and ending portions are elevated and straightforward, but the center portion is through a swamp. The Adventure Map (Chrismar mapping services) shows this as a 720 meter (138 rod) portage. The Mackenzie maps show this as a single 128 rod portage. Paddleplanner shows this as 2 portages divided by a swamp. The Fisher maps show the first portage leg of 100 rods into a swamp and then... no way out. However it may change - and contrary to the Fisher map there is a way out - this year it was a single portage with a very (waist) deep swamp in the middle. There are well intentioned cut logs to aid with footing, but these have rotted and high water levels make them less than stable. In years of high water like 2018 this will be a challenging portage.
