On Paddleplanner, the Mackenzie maps and the Fisher maps, this is shown as a single 204 rod portage. On The Adventure Map of Quetico (published by Chrismar Mapping Services, which can be purchased at Prairie Portage), this is shown as two portages: one of 350 meters (67 rods) and another of 220 meters (42 rods) with a river in between. Water levels were high enough that the center portion of this portage was navigable by canoe in July 2018 making the Chrismar maps the most accurate. Although there was a beaver dam at one point and large deadfall at another, each requiring a push portage, it is better to paddle than portage: when the water levels are high, do not do this as a single portage as the center stretch becomes a knee-deep swamp. It is much easier by canoe.

Most of this is no longer walkable. Requires pull over at beaver dam quite early on when going from K-piwi to Trant - and then need to paddle and walk canoe through low lying bog/marsh for most of the rest of the portage. When you run out of marsh look for the portage trail again on the NE side. The last 60 rods or so are very rocky.
