Canoeing.com note: The Historic Wabakimi Canoe Routes planning map is great for overview of potential routes in Wabakimi Provincial Park and connecting Crown Lands. And the information found in the five-volume set of maps is invaluable for final stage planning of a wilderness canoe route in the Wabakimi Area. The set of maps will save you both time and money in realizing your travel plans in this remote area of Canada and more importantly will help you best prepare for the challenges paddling the white-water rivers, and flat water lakes found throughout the Wabakimi. Actual navigation on your trip is best done with the detailed maps from the five-volume route maps series combined with 1:50,000 topographic maps.
All canoe routes were mapped, explored, and portage trails improved by Phil Cotton and The Wabakimi Project’s 244 volunteers between 2004-2018
