Head River Canoe Route:
In this piece (reprinted from The Prairie Smoke 3.3) Harry describes one of his favourite canoe routes. The Head River runs roughly parallel to the Monck Road, traversing the southern reaches of the Canadian Shield from east to west. For the most part the there is no evidence of human activity along much of the length of the river.
The vistas are frequently stunning and an abundance of wildlife will be in evidence. Please note that parts of the Head river will require fairly high skill levels, and are not for the inexperienced canoeist. We have added a road map and a few topographical maps to let you get a better idea of the terrain and vegetation.
