Sadly, this route is no longer viable due to another round of hydro-electic development on what was once a fabulous, untouched wilderness canoe trip. Whether the route becomes worthwhile once again after several dams are finished remains to be seen.
One of Ontario's few remaining easily accessible wilderness white water paddling routes. Starting at the Town of White River on Hwy 17 north of Wawa, this map shows details of the 145-kilometre route across and down the Canadian Shield to Lake Superior and Pukaskwa National Park.
An excellent combination of some flatwater paddling, light and heavy white water sections and some paddling on the inland sea, Lake Superior.
This 1:50,000 scale, completely original (like all the others) topographic map has unprecedented detail, and includes access points, campsites, portages, plus many other features. The back side includes a complete description of the route, natural and human history, safety concerns, contact info and fine colour photos.
Waterproof. And a good thing too. Did you see the size of that waterfall!
