    Algonquin Park: Cedar Lake - Hogan Lake Loop

    Yeah, one of the risks on this loop is the size of some of the lakes, and sometimes paddling up the Petawawa towards Burntroot can be a slog as it is usually into the wind. We were windbound on Burntroot in 2016. We were in irons on Perley Lake, so by the time we got to the Portal Rapids we were...

    Algonquin Park: Cedar Lake - Hogan Lake Loop

    I still can't believe the distance you guys drove to enjoy one of the best areas of Algonquin! Hats off to you, and glad you made it home safe. You did give us false hope on the bug front though... the wind died down that weekend and we were hammered pretty good. Still more fun than being...

    Algonquin Park: Cedar Lake - Hogan Lake Loop

    Day 5 : Hogan Lake (Parks Bay) to Radiant Lake TOTAL KM: 25.8 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): 5 (6.5 KM) Day 5 was going to be a bit of a wild card. We have never been through this way before, and any time you see a 3+ KM portage on the map it makes you take a second look. On top of the big...

    Day 3 : Redpine Bay (Rest Day) TOTAL KM: N/A | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): N/A We do not often take rest days, but we decided to give ourselves one on this trip. It would be a nice way to add some buffer in case of windy days on big lakes, but in all honesty we just wanted to indulge a little...

    Day 2 : Catfish Lake to Redpine Bay TOTAL KM: 16.9 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): 5 (1.4 KM) Woke up to a bright sunny morning, with a very calm Catfish Lake. Our plan was to paddle our way all the way through Burntroot and hopefully camp on our favourite campsite in the Park, the island...

    Algonquin Park: Cedar Lake - Hogan Lake Loop

    Day 1 : Cedar Lake to Catfish Lake TOTAL KM: 16.7 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): 5 (3.6 KM) Every time we had have been to Access #27 the volume of fellow trippers has been light. Part of the lure of the Northern part of Algonquin is the remote feel to the big lakes. We avoid highway 60 as...

    Day 6 : Herring Chutes (Western Channel) to Eastern Outlet TOTAL KM: 16 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): N/A I woke to another glorious morning on the French River. Since we went to bed so early, I was up earlier than normal. The sky was just starting to lighten and the river was completely...

    Day 5 : Ox Island to Herring Chutes (Western Channel) TOTAL KM: 27 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): N/A We woke up to torrential rain as expected. I found it hard to lay there in my hammock, being well rested, and just listing to the rain pound away on my tarp. I wrote in my journal a bit...

    Day 4 : Crooked Rapids to Ox Island TOTAL KM 38 KM # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE) N/A We woke up to a calm but chilly morning, with plenty of colour in the sky. Certainly not a sailor’s delight! We had just experienced an entire afternoon and evening of rain, so we were not excited about the...

    Day 2 : Lake Nipissing to Portage Channel Dam TOTAL KM: 25 KM | # OF PORTAGES (DISTANCE): 1 (580 meters) We woke up to another spectacular morning. Lake Nipissing was calm, and the sun was shining. It was going to be another sweltering day. Both of our arms and faces were already showing...

    FRENCH RIVER 2022: Lake Nipissing to Georgian Bay

    Thanks for taking the time to check this out. I wanted to put some French River content up for some time now, and include the logistics and planning steps we took to pull it off. Hopefully it will help other people that are on the fence about heading up that way. I read the other trip reports...

    Algonquin Park: Lake Travers to McManus Lake - Fall 2022

    Right after thanksgiving (Canadian), myself and two buddies were able to get out on a 4-day trip down the Petawawa River in Algonquin Park. Our plan was to start at Lake Travers and head to McManus Lake with two nights spent at the Crooked Chute ranger cabin. We were going to hit as many...

    Solo 1-2 week route ideas for an older guy, preferably in Ontario

    If you are looking for remote tripping with very little portaging... and are fine with some travel and possibly a flight in, have you considered Wabakimi? We did a week long trip (wish we had time to do longer) in 2019 and absolutely loved it. We normally trip in Algonquin, so to escape the...
