Trip-logs

Stacks Image 2219

Listed below are written accounts (Complete with photos) of 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.

Alternatively, if you are familiar with Algonquin Park's access points, you can use the map (Left) to quickly search for and select trip-logs based on starting access points. "Click" a starting access point to display corresponding trip-logs via a pop-up window.

In addition to the official twenty-nine access points, an access point named "Hwy 60" has been added to the map. This is used to signify the various hiking trails, campgrounds and canoe trips (Without an official access point) that I've experienced along the highway#60 corridor in Algonquin Park.
