Wabakimi Canoe Route Maps Volume Four
Albany River & Southern Tributaries (Patte Lake to Abazotikichuan Lake)
The coverage area extends east along the Albany River from Patte Lake to Abazotikichuan Lake and includes the route to Fort Hope on Eabamet Lake. The southern tributaries of the Albany River contained in this booklet include the Greenmantle, Shabuskwia, Witchwood, Attwood, Cat Tail and Opichuan Rivers as well as Petawa Creek all of which are historically-significant waterways that link the Albany and Ogoki Rivers.
Printed on 8.5 x11.0” high-quality paper, each canoe map depicts the locations of land-based features such as campsites and portages. Accurately measured portage lengths are expressed in meters to make them compatible with NTS 1:50,000 topo maps. A descriptive page title indicates the extent of the map coverage and direction of flow of the main intervening waterway (e.g., Davis Lake to Ahleen Lake via Palisade River). Maps are uniform in scale and each overlaps adjoining maps for seamless coverage of a canoe route. Enlargement circles provide magnified details of portages and campsites as well as the locations of known hazards or obstacles such as swifts, rapids, waterfalls and beaver dams. Locations of remote tourism establishments are included where assistance may be obtained should an emergency arise.

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
