The Historic Wabakimi Canoe Routes Planning Map
The Wabakimi Project (2004-2018) Map, Historic Canoe Routes, with access points into the Wabakimi Provincial Park using the greater surrounding Crown land wilderness areas.
Produced by “Uncle” Phil Cotton working with professional cartographers and published by the Friends of the Wabakimi. In a readable scale of 1:210,000 this is the only map of its kind to depict all the known canoe routes in the Historic Wabakimi Area, which includes the Wabakimi Provincial Park and eight surrounding Provincial Parks. It also includes; the Mojikit Lake, Attwood River, Ottertooth and Lake Nipigon Conservation Reserves; and bordering Crown lands forests. Information also shows the access points from the paved highways, forest roads, and Canadian National Railway line that runs east--west through this vast wilderness area.
This bright attractive map shows the primary and secondary heights of land, lakes and rivers, the provincial parks and conservation reserve boundaries as drawn from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR) data set. The backdrop of the map is a "3-D" geotiff image created from the OMNR 20m Digital Elevation Model.
Grid lines every 30 minutes of longitude and every 15 minutes of latitude define the coverage of the 1:50,000 Provincial Series of topographical maps with Topo map index numbers provided at the grid intersection points over the entire extent of the map.
Printed in full color this 36" x 35" map covers 43,000+ square kilometers (16,500 square miles) of pristine wilderness.
Paper / Non-waterproof folded (9 x 11.625")
Canoeing.com note: This map is essential for the early planning stages of a wilderness canoe trip to the Wabakimi Area. It will save you both time and money in realizing your travel plans in this remote area of Canada. The map works best in conjunction with the five volume set of detailed canoe routes and portage information published by the Friends of Wabakimi or with 1:25,000 topo maps used for navigation. Canoe routes were mapped, explored, and portage trails improved by Phil Cotton and The Wabakimi Project’s 244 volunteers between 2004-2018.
