Drew (of the website "All Of Algonquin") has had an article featured online by the Explore Magazine .. "Tips for the Perfect Paddling Trip".

"It focuses on the three biggest mistakes I've made while paddling and what I learned from those mistakes. Writing for someone else was a new experience for me. I'm not used to having an editor (which is obvious if you've waded through any of my trip reports), and it's an interesting feeling seeing something you wrote that's been reinterpreted by someone else (to an extent)."


Monday, July 10th, 2023 . . . . .

Drew (of the website "All Of Algonquin") and his pal Mark headed out of Kiosk on a six day early June trip through Maple and Erables Lakes, southwest on to Birchcliffe Cabin .. then onward to Highview Cabin .. then south to the Nipissing River and downstream to High Falls .. then closing the loop north through Nadine, Osler and Skuce Lakes .. and finally back to Kiosk via Erables and Maple Lake. "Birchcliffe, The Nip and Some Hills".

"The site is located on a hilly point, and there wasnít a ton of flat ground for tents. On top of that, the wind whipping through the point made it pretty chilly. We ended up eating lunch huddled behind some bushes towards the back of the site. Fortunately, between the sun shining down and the soft bed of moss beneath us, this ended up being a pretty comfortable spot to eat some peanut butter. Once lunch was finished, all that was left between us and the cabin was about 3 KM of low maintenance portage. Thatís a lot of low maintenance portage."

Ian Tendy has produced a trip-log of his early May week-long canoe trip with his buddy Shane .. "May Trip 2023" ... a loop out of Canoe Lake, through McIntosh, Grassy bay, White Trout, Big Trout and Burnt Island Lake.

"According to the weather report, the wind was going to be up all day and night, bringing the overnight low to -11 Celcius and we wanted to be as protected as possible in order to have a chance of enjoying ourselves. We turned around and started heading south, settling on the first multi-site island as you come out of the narrows. The sourthern-most site was simple, tarpable, easy to get in and out of, and protected! Between the narrow channel in front of us and the big hill behind us, this site was as good as we were going to get."

"AllTrails.com .. Best trails in Algonquin Provincial Park" is just a small part of an intriguing online resource for day-hikers!

AllTrails operates on a "freemium" (free and premium access) business model and is accessible through both a web browser on a computer and and a mobile app on a mobile device.

While it will inform you about many trails in Algonquin Park, it will also help you hiking both in your local "back home" vicinity and "far away" should you travel elsewhere.

Cody (forum handle: "trippythings") has published a susbstantial report on his website "Algonquin & Beyond" describing "November Hiking in Algonquin Park ó 5 Days at the Wolf Den"

Cody's skill with his camera is very much apparent!


Monday, January 16th, 2023 . . . . .

Evan, over at the "Single Malt and Maps YouTube Channel", has published a three-part video account of his four day white-water canoe trip this past October down the Petawawa River from Lake Travers to McManus Lake.

In addition, he's provided a written account of the same trip on the AlgonquinAdventures.com forum .. "Lake Travers to McManus Lake" with links to the videos included.

He was accompanied/guided on the trip by accomplished white-water canoeists Jarin and Steve of the "Knox On Woods YouTube Channel", who also recorded the trip.


Sunday, January 1st, 2023 . . . . .

A new "Downloadable Historical Park Maps" page has been added to this website's Resource section providing downloads of some vintage Algonquin Park maps. The maps were originally posted on Mark Rubino's website markinthepark.com with the provision that they are freely available to everyone and that others are free to mirror them, to help reduce the load on the server hosting markinthepark.com.

These particular image files have had their colour-casts returned closer to their original unfaded levels and have been reduced in pixel dimensions and file-size to facilitate quicker download.

The new page also includes a link to a repository of historic Algonquin Park maps maintained by Diana and Bob McElroy on their website at "McElroy.ca".


Wednesday, November 30th, 2022 . . . . .

Warm weather in the first half of November got Drew (forum handle: "AlgonquinLakes") out on a day-trip exploring Sec, Mallard, Log Canoe, Little Sec, Wet and Norm Lakes .. .. "Sec Lake Exploratory".

Drew has also added a newsletter to his website "All Of Algonquin". The newsletter is called "The Thunderbox".

"Welcome to The Thunderbox, my (hopefully) monthly roundup of anything Algonquin related thatís caught my eye. This newsletter includes a spotlight lake, recent trip and campsite reports, reviews of any new gear Iíve been trying out (or maybe just old gear that Iím a huge fan of) and links to any relevant Algonquin content Iíve come across recently."

Wanda Spruyt has submitted a trip-log of her two-part mother-daughter & solo canoe trip taken this past August .. "Back-to-back Burnt Island / Opeongo Trip".

"Throughout our trip we saw and spoke with many people, often late in the day. Some were exhausted trying to find a good site, with no open sites within view or anywhere close for that matter. We did our best to direct some travelers to anything we knew was still open, as we paddled around quite a bit every day. For us this was a first. We have not yet had an issue finding a good site, although we usually travel later in the season. When half of Burnt Island Lake up to Caroline Island is full, its actually quite a long paddle from the portage to find an open site, especially when the majority have already travelled over four hours from Canoe Lake, wanting to camp ASAP.."


Friday, November 18th, 2022 . . . . .
