A new edition of the best-selling guide, expanded with 10 more routes and over 50 more pages.
Ontario is blessed with some of the most scenic and enjoyable lakes and rivers in the world - it truly is a paddler's paradise. This updated and expanded third edition is destined to become the classic guide to the very best canoeing the province has to offer.
Top 70 Canoe Routes of Ontario includes 10 more of Kevin Callan's favorite canoe excursions. While some of these routes are well known to paddlers province-wide, others are hidden secrets. The trips range from day-long paddles to week-long expeditions and are divided amongst nine regions: Southern Ontario, Cottage Country, Algonquin, Central Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Temagami, Ontario's Near North, Northern Ontario and Northwestern Ontario.
New routes include:
- Georgian Bay's Eastern Shore
- Queen Elizabeth Wildlands
- Trent-Severn Waterway to Georgian Bay
- Tay River and Canal
- Lake Nippissing's West Bay
- Grand River - Cambrige to Brantford
- The Nith River
- Wallaceburg Water Trail
- Temagami's Wasaksina-Cross Lake Loop
- Wildwood Conservation Area.
Kevin offers paddlers all they will need to complete each route, including accurate maps of all access points, portage lengths, important river features and campsites - all embellished with historical notes and Kevin's trademark humor. He also includes a detailed "Before You Go" section in which he shares the expertise that has earned him the title of Canada's Happy Camper.
