Paddling the Grand River by Jamie Kent (179)

Renowned for its recreational paddling opportunities, water quality, cultural heritage and fishing, the Grand River offers paddling trips for both novice and experienced paddlers.

This guide follows the Grand from Belwood Lake just upriver of Fergus, past Kitchener-Waterloo through Cambridge, Paris and Brantford to Port Maitland at Lake Erie.

Whether you are interested in a two-hour trip or a six-day excursion, this newly updated guide has everything you need. It includes full-colour maps displaying access points, portages and points of interest. It also includes details on local sights fishing, accommodation, parking, outfitters and supplier, and aerial photos showing portages around dams and the book coordinates for GPS navigation.

This guide is perfect for anyone considering a trip on the Grand, and is invaluable for an afternoon’s excursion or a multi-day adventure on this beautiful heritage river.

I loved this book and will buy a copy for myself to enjoy at home. Who knows, I may just find myself visiting the Grand River.  I have always gone around the Grand, but never went directly to it to visit. What a grand river it is!
