Portage Description:
This portage is not hard - if you start at the right place! The Fisher maps mark the wrong starting place on the little unnamed lake. (Note, there is a short portage from Joyce into this unnamed lake that is not marked on Fisher either.) The portage does not start from the west tip of Unnamed, but instead starts from the north bay of Unnamed near the outlet creek and goes more or less "straight ahead."

There is an alternative route, which starts at the point marked on Fisher (west tip of Unnamed) but has not recently been cleared, and which dead ends into a T intersection (if you read this you won't go that way, but the right way from there to Marj is left). I know, we went that wrong way, it was messy and confusing. Start at the right place and you will fly through.

Lake after portage: Marj
Known campsites: not sure
Lake Description:

Marj was filled with angry whitecaps when we got there, so we did not scout for campsites but went to the Burt portage as directly as possible given the conditions. Note that the purported campsite shown on the PCD on the Unnamed Lake where the portage starts does not appear to exist.
