New in this edition: Ten new routes, 64 added pages, updated text -- an essential purchase of a revised classic

Review of previous edition:
The book is much more than a trip guide Callan weaves in anecdotes from his own trips, so there's all the nuts and bolts info but with some good stories thrown in
-- The Journal of Canadian Wilderness Canoeing

Ontario's Algonquin Park is one of North America's foremost canoeing destinations Only a day's journey from the Great Lakes and much of the Eastern Seaboard, and 200 miles from Toronto, it's a paddler's paradise of spectacular lakes, rivers and marshes surrounded by maple hills and rocky ridges The only way to explore the interior of the park is by canoe or on foot, where you will be rewarded with a chorus of wolves howling and the echoing call of loons You may also see more of the abundant wildlife that call it home: moose, white-tailed deer, beaver, black bears, and more than 300 bird and 30 reptile species

This revised and updated edition of A Paddler's Guide to Algonquin Park has 64 more pages, 10 new canoe routes for a total of 35, new photographs by Callan, and detailed redesigned maps showing portages and permitted campsites Callan has chosen routes of varying difficulty and experience, from easy to deep backcountry

Along with updates of information according to changes in park conditions, regulations, closed routes and so on, the book includes this essential information:

  • Route difficulty
  • Portages
  • Campsite locations
  • Put-in and take-out recommendations
  • Alternative access points
