Trails and Hikes

Algonquin isn’t just about the paddling. In fact, my guess is that the majority of people who visit the Park don’t travel more than 1 or 2 lakes away from the main access points along highway 60. So it’s a good thing that there is so much to do along the highway 60 corridor beyond strapping a canoe to your back and hoping to outrun the bugs on your way to Big Trout. My focus in the Park is on paddling, but from time to time I try to check out some of the other attractions that are closer to home. Here you’ll find short reviews and recaps of some of the hikes I’ve done and attractions I’ve visited when I’m not out on the water.
