Ontario is blessed with some of the most scenic and enjoyable lakes and rivers in the world — it is truly a paddler's paridise. Complete with detailed maps, Top 50 Canoe Routes of Ontario is destined to become the classic guide to the very best canoe routes the province has to offer.

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 humour.

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, including:
  • 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
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 is the leading author on canoeing in Ontario, and this book will be welcomed by his many readers, especially novice canoeists.
