Paddling & Hiking Ontario’s Southern Shield Country contains a collection of excursions that explore, both on foot and by kayak or canoe, the portion of the Canadian Shield that lies within Southern Ontario.

The single-day excursions in this book explore the southern part of Ontario's rugged shield country, much of which exists within the protective boundaries of national and provincial parks and Crown preserves, and contain campgrounds or backcountry campsites that make ideal bases for your trips. Combining hiking and paddling in equal measure, these wilderness trips are designed to return to their starting points so that no car shuttling is required. The paddling is entirely flatwater, with only an occasional gentle current to navigate.

Portages are infrequent and generally short. The book also suggests alternative routes for those seeking a more strenuous outing.

Trips featured include:
  • Frontenac Provincial Park
  • Bon Echo Provincial Park
  • The Achray Region
  • Silent Lake Provincial Park
  • Petroglyphs Provincial Park
  • Algonquin Park
  • The Frost Center
  • Massasauga Provincial Park
  • Grundy Lake Provincial Park
  • Killarney Provincial Park
  • Mississagi Provincial Park
  • And a taste of Lake Superior: Agawa's Rocks, Bald Head and Orphan Lake, Gargantua's Bays, Capes and Islands, Old Woman Bay and Brûlé Harbor.
