Does anyone know if there's a direct link between Ferguson L and Owaissa L?

The Friends of Temagami map indicates P5 but doesn't show a portage path on the map.

I see that the P5 refers to a historic nastawgan portage that now crosses Hwy 11. There are three nastawgans from Owaissa to connect to Ferguson Lake trough the wetlands, the last P5 can now take advantage of local roads. Take a look at google satellite view.

Thanks alscool!

I was confused since no other nastawgan includes a distance and there are a number of instances where a red portage line isn't shown where a portage follows the highway

Looking at Google satellite view I see what you mean though. The other two nastawgans would have to be opened up for the route to be doable.

Thanks again!
