Kevin Callan's top 50 canoe trips.

It's no surprise that Kevin Callan lives in Peterborough, Ontario, deep in the heart of canoe country and home to the Canadian Canoe Museum. He has written 12 other books on canoe trips in Ontario, and this new book will be welcomed by his many readers, especially novice canoeists.

Some of these routes are well known, and others are hidden secrets. Callan gives all the information paddlers need to complete each route, from detailed descriptions and maps of all access points to accurate portage lengths and important river features, as well as general advice on everything from running rapids to shuttle arrangements - all embellished with historical notes and his trademark humor.

Ranging from two-day paddles to week-long expeditions, Top 50 Canoe Routes of Ontario includes 40 routes taken from Callan's Paddler's Guides series, including:

  • Turtle River
  • White River
  • Nellie Lake Loop
  • Eighteen-Mile Island Loop
  • Old Voyageur Channel
  • Big Trout Loop
  • Nipissing River
  • Barron Canyon
  • Leopold's North Country Loop
  • The Pines Loop
  • Sturgeon Lake/Olifaunt Lake
  • Wabakimi Provincial Park
  • Bark Lake Loop
  • York River

The book also includes 10 new routes that Callan has yet to share with his readers. They include:

  • Elliot Lake Blue Lake Loop
  • Lake Superior Provincial Park's Old Woman Lake
  • Spanish River, Biscotasing Lake Loop
  • Island Lake
  • Upper Ottawa River
  • Algonquin's South Panhandle

About the Author:

Kevin Callan is the author of 10 books, including the best-selling A Paddler's Guide series and The Happy Camper. He is the recipient of two National Magazine Awards and is a featured speaker at many of North America's largest paddling events. He lives in Peterborough, Ontario.

Review:

Perhaps most notable is Callan's "aw, shucks" writing style, which puts readers in his shoes and captures the essence of his first-hand experiences paddling each route with the congeniality of a campfire story. Callan likes to mention that he's avoided the truly iconic canoe tripping of the Canadian North because he "has no money... and likes trees." His latest guidebook goes a long way in his mission to prove that it's still possible to discover great wilderness tripping in our own backyards. (Conor Mihell Canoe and Kayak Magazine 2011-04-08)

Canoeist Kevin Callan, author of the bestseller The Happy Camper, has mined his Paddler's Guides series to compile this top-50 list for his 13th book on canoe trips in Ontario. Whether you're looking for a two-day outing or a week-long adventure, Callan provides all the information you need for each route--the number of portages and their lengths, river features, historical notes, and maps. He also includes difficulty ratings and use advice such as where the poison ivy is lurking. (Liz Grogan Good Times 2011-05-31)
