Returning to the Park

Algonquin Provincial Park

The following is an excerpt from the Ontario Parks website about Algonquin Provincial Park.  While it has been about a year since I have been in the park via car and almost 4 via my canoe, the description still resonates with me.

Late summer and early fall has always been my favourite time in the park and I think 2017 will mark my return to this magical place.

See you soon Algonquin!

The essence of Algonquin is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by canoe or on foot. There is also a second Algonquin - along the 56 kilometre stretch of Highway 60. Here you can enjoy camping at one of eight campgrounds, hike one of 14 trails, take part in extensive Natural Heritage Education programs, and visit Algonquin’s exceptional Visitor Centre, Logging Museum and Art Centre. For over 50 years, each Thursday in August, park staff have offered the “Public Wolf Howl”, a highly engaging program on wolf ecology that includes howling for wolves. Weather and wildlife dependent.
