Description

A new edition of the best-selling guide, expanded with 10 more routes over 48 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. Like the first edition of this book, this updated and expanded second edition is destined to become the classic guide to the very best canoeing the province has to offer.

Top 60 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, such as the Bonnechere River, others are hidden secrets, like the ambitious and magical Woodland Caribou Park. The routes range from two-day 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.

Kevin gives paddlers all the information they 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.

Editorial Review

[Review of previous edition:] Canoeist Kevin Callan, author of the bestseller The Happy Camper, has mined his Paddler's Guides series to compile this top-50 list for his 13th book on canoe trips in Ontario. Whether you're looking for a two-day outing or a week-long adventure, Callan provides all the information you need for each route--the number of portages and their lengths, river features, historical notes, and maps. He also includes difficulty ratings and use advice such as where the poison ivy is lurking.
