Algonquin Provincial Park Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"When the government of Ontario passed the Algonquin Park Act, which set aside 18 townships as a “health resort and pleasure ground” and logging forest reserve in 1893, they didn’t know that their park would eventually attract about a million visitors a year to see 45 species of mammals, 138 breeding birds and a variety of plants, trees and fungi. Nor did they know that future ministers would increase the amount of land protected within their province’s oldest park another 12 times so that it now includes a territory of 772,500ha (1,908,000 acres). The area is so large that a number of trails run from four distinct areas, each of which is a 1 to 4hr drive away from the others. They are: the Frank McDougall Parkway, a Highway 60 corridor that goes through a southern portion of the park; the Brent crater at the northern edge of the park; the eastern Achray campground area, and the southern Kingscote Lake region.

This trail guide includes Beaver Pond, Hardwood Lookout, High Falls Trail, Peck Lake Trail, Spruce Bog Trail, Whiskey Rapids Trail, Barron Canyon, Brent Crater, Lookout Trail, Two Rivers Trail, Bat Lake Trail, Berm Lake Trail, Booth’s Rock Trail, Hemlock Bluff, Mizzy Lake, Centennial Ridges, Eastern Pines Backpacking Trail, Track and Tower, Bruton Farm Trail, Highland Backpacking Trail, Scorch Lake Lookout Trail, and Western Uplands Backpacking Trail."

Algonquin is my favorite place to escape to the peace of nature. My wife and Have visited 3 times and I eagerly await the next moment I can slip away. The pristine waters of the hundreds of interconnecting lakes and rivers make it a mecca for canoeist and kayakers. There are infinite opportunities for outdoor adventure, backpacking, canoe camping, roadside camping, mountain biking, day paddling, day hiking, swimming, fishing, and outstanding wildlife viewing. If there were more star possible I would give them. If you can, don't miss the pristine canadian wilderness.
