Haha, soon! Look for a followup post in the next month or two.

We ended up putting a lot more time into design than we'd originally anticipated, but the result will be an even better map =)

Perhaps Bob might chime in, but here's a trip log he published: https://mcelroy.ca/bushlog/20070511.html

You can put in/take out at Basin Depot, or at Stringers Lake, though Stringers might have some water level issues at the put-in?

It might also be possible to put in in Sligo, but I've never took any time to check since I doubt that'd be viable for more than a day trip (in terms of parking).

Oops, it looks like I made a mistake and didn't mark that as an unofficial low water portage.

The route itself is official, it's just otherwise impassible when water levels are low.

To that end, I'm not sure why the reservation system is doing that...

Apologies tentsterforever, but that's incorrect.

I know for a fact that the sites on Park and Victory are in good condition (I've seen a bunch of photos of the Park L site, and have stayed at the Victory L site myself). The site on Snow (there is only one, not two like my old map shows) is, as you note, in very poor condition.

Since these sites are on crown land (i.e. not in the park), they are unsigned.

When water levels are low it is indeed challenging to get into Snow and Victory from Park L (Victory especially). The time I stayed at the Victory L site it was mid-August and we were justtt able to navigate into the lake.

I'm wondering what the portage from Luckless to Lynx is like? Is it a fairly clear/wide trail that's typically in decent enough shape? Or a poor/hard-to-follow trail in poorer shape?

My guess is the former, but I haven't been able to find out much online about it.

TIA

Hi all! Looking for an oddly obscure piece of info for the map.

Has anyone done the 395m portage across the middle of Big Porcupine Lake? I googled around and didn't find anything on it, unfortunately (presumably, most people skip it).

In particular, I'm just looking to confirm that it's a fairly clear/wide trail that's typically in decent enough shape.

Yes, it's legal to take that road to that starting point. I can't speak to its current condition, but my recollection is that it's at a fairly high elevation compared to the surrounding terrain, so I'd be hopeful it isn't washed out.

To get to it, head to the Big Pines Trail parking lot, then head up the road (unsigned) at the west end of the parking lot. From there, drive until you see the gate. There is a small parking area on the left, and a marked portage down to the lake on the right.

Back to mapping ;)

All 20 sites on Misty still exist. Not all sites are reservable (for the exact reasons you mention).
