Height of Land Portage is a portage along the historic Boundary Waters route between Canada and the United States. Located at the border of the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of Minnesota, the path is a relatively easy crossing of the Laurentian Divide separating the watersheds of the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. Located in La Verendrye Provincial Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in the unspoiled country along the international boundary, the portage retains its traditional use, but for recreational canoe trips rather than commerce.

  • Le portage de la Hauteur des Terres (anglais : Height of Land Portage) est un sentier de Portage situé sur la frontière entre le Canada et les États-Unis, qui franchit le partage des eaux laurentien entre les deux bassins versants se dirigeant vers l'océan Arctique ou l'océan Atlantique. Il est situé sur la route frontalière des Voyageurs, qui permettait au XVIIIe et XIXe siècles de relier Montréal à Winnipeg en canot pour la traite des fourrures. Il a été utilisé durant plusieurs siècles par les Amérindiens comme route commerciale et ensuite par les voyageurs comme route d'accès aux postes de traite des fourrures de l'Ouest canadien. Il est ensuite devenu une partie de la frontière entre l'Amérique du Nord britannique et des États-Unis à la suite de la Guerre d'indépendance des États-Unis
