The best-selling (and only) paddling guide to this popular Canadian Heritage River in southwestern Ontario, now updated and in full colour
Paddling the Grand River follows the Grand from Belwood Lake just upriver of Fergus, past Kitchener-Waterloo and through Cambridge, Paris, and Brantford to Port Maitland at the mouth of the Grand at Lake Erie. The Grand is renowned for its recreational paddling opportunities, its water quality, and its fishing.
Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts have long enjoyed the experience of paddling the Grand, a 290-km meandering waterway whose banks display some of the area's most interesting human and natural history. A perennial bestseller since it was first produced in 1982, this new edition is completely updated, with maps detailing the access points and special features and highlights of ten different sections.
Numerous colour photographs show paddlers some of the visual highlights of the river. The text describes trips ranging from two hours' to five days' travel. Details on local sights, fishing, accommodation, parking, outfitters, and suppliers are included. Aerial photos showing the portages around the dams and GPS locator numbers are new features that add value to this classic.
Paddling the Grand River is perfect for anyone considering a trip on the Grand, and is invaluable for an afternoon's excursion or a multi-day adventure on this beautiful heritage river.
