Portages in Algonquin Park

Portages are trails that connect two navigable waterways along the Park's Canoe Routes Network. Portages range in length from less than 50 metres to over 5 kilometres in length. Depending upon your desires and skill level, you can create a backcountry canoe trip or canoeing day trip to meeting your interest.

All portages in Algonquin Park are marked with a yellow sign with a portaging graphic (person carrying a canoe), and lists the connecting water bodies and the portage length in metres.

See the Canoe Routes Map-Brochure of Algonquin Provincial Park for more information.
