An Introduction to the Barron Canyon in Algonquin Park

In early June 2008, my old friend Tom and I travelled up from Ottawa to Algonquin Park to do some Canoeing in Barron Canyon. It's one of the most beautiful ribbon of water for a canoe, and has great campsites.  I wanted to put a few pictures up to give you an idea of what's in store.

The trip is about two and a half hours out of the city on Highway 17. Take the Sand Gate entrance road, which is miles of dirt but in good shape. You put in just after the steep descent and over the river bridge.

Now you're ready to enjoy the day...or the week!

only a short 400 metre portage

What a great campsite!

Man, what a great view...

and a good license Plate in the parking lot ( the only other car there!)

See you there!
