Listed below (In chronological order) is most of all the canoe trips, hiking trails and campgrounds that I have experienced in Algonquin Park. The majority of the trip-logs are interior canoe camping, as this is my preferred area/mode of travel. Note: Trip-logs from the old website are not linked here, but can be found on the old web site here.

If you are familiar with Algonquin Park's access points, you can quickly search for and select trip-logs based on starting access points. Using the map above, you can 'click' a starting access point. Corresponding trip-logs will then be displayed via a pop-up window.

For error reporting, please use the "
Contact" link. Errors will be corrected as soon as possible to maintain a certain degree of accuracy. When visiting Algonquin Park, please observe and respect all Algonquin Park regulations. This helps to ensure a cleaner, greener Algonquin Park for all to enjoy.

Note: In addition to the official twenty-nine access points, an additional access point named "Hwy 60" has been added to the map above. This is used to signify the various hiking trails and campgrounds through-out highway#60, as well as canoe trips that start without an official access point along the highway#60 corridor.
