HEART OF THE CONTINENT
Mapping Canada’s Canoe Route
Explorations from Lake Superior to Manitoba
By Hap Wilson Published by Firefly Books
Release Date: spring 2017 (Canada’s 150th.)

THE BOOK: A Brief Synopsis

Five years ago the Trans Canada Trail executives approached Hap Wilson about designing and mapping a canoe route from Lake Superior to Manitoba. Unable to build a land-based trail, the TCT had decided to earmark this National canoe route as an integral part of the Canadian cross-country trail system. Dedicated to Canada’s First Nations and canoeing icon Bill Mason, the route is called Path of the Paddle, tracing a diverse route over 1,000 kilometers from Thunder Bay to Whiteshell Park in Manitoba. Following the historic Pigeon River and the Gunflint Route, Path of the Paddle uses a little known route through Quetico Wilderness Park, north beyond Atikokan and the Turtle River Waterway system, up to Dryden and on to Kenora, finishing up along the Winnipeg River and Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba. The book also includes many adjoining routes, kayak and paddleboard touring destinations, and local hikes up some spectacular vistas. Maps are hand-drawn with an artistic, historic look approach, detailed for safe navigation, with drawings, charts and photographs, along with journal notes. As with any Hap Wilson guidebook, this project has taken several years of intense field and studio work to complete; scheduled for release of spring 2017 as a celebration for Canada’s 150th. birthday.

Monthly information will be available for viewing by checking back here for updates at hapwilson.com.
