In addition to the access and take-out points, we also include paddling route tracks, as well as search by category (ex. Lakes vs River Routes).

In addition to geo-referencing the paddling Points of Interest, we have included tracks of the actual paddling route where available. Along with the short descriptions on most of these sites and routes, these write-ups can include location, lake, river and waterbody names, river routes, route length, difficulty level (easy, moderate, difficult), grading and classification, highlights, seasonal information, directions and access points, safety tips and much more.
