Algonquin Park Trip Reports

Algonquin Backcountry Trip Reports

Welcome to the Trip Report Archive. Here you will find all my trip reports. Archived. Hooray!

(I’ve organized this according to the access point I started from for each trip and included the lakes covered by each report to make it easier to find stream of thought rambling information on each lake). *Just a note. Most of my trip reports reference Jeff’s Maps’ Algonquin Map and, in many cases, actually link to the website. As great as this map has been, if you do not already own one, do not order one from the website. Jeff’s Maps has undergone a change in ownership in the past few years and the new owner is not honoring orders. If you order a map it is more likely than not that you will not receive it.
