  This is my personal nemesis...

I know this is a dead thread, but I thought I'd contribute anyway.

It's not overly long or difficult, though it is a little of both, it's more annoying than anything.

It's from Kawasachong --> Townline at 189 rods. What makes it suck is that Townline is a little flyspeck lake that is so small, it's hardly worth loading the canoe up again to paddle across before you hit your next portage to Polly, which is another 95 rods.

Neither portage is particularly daunting, there is a fair bit of up and down but it's not back-breaking. The trails are mostly clear and not difficult to navigate. It's having two fairly long portages back to back with a lake in between that's smaller than a large sports stadium that makes it so annoying.
