4.0 out of 5 stars A good summary of Algonquin park, Jan. 19 2004
By 
Russell Sturmey (Mississauga, Ontario Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Explorer's Guide to Algonquin Park (Paperback)
This provides you with a very good overview of places to visit inside the park. It includes all areas: the Highway 60 corridor, the north and the east sides of the park.
The book goes into details of good places to visit for scenic views, or viewing wildlife, or having a picnic. This is a good book to bring with you when you visit the Park.
What stopped me from giving this book 5-stars was that most of the information available in the book is also available on the internet. I was hoping to learn of secret trails, or places to visit that the average tourist doesn't know about. There were a couple of places I never knew existed, but not as much as I had hoped for.
The book is a good guide to take with you to the park to remind you of interesting places.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Trip Planning Guide, April 13 2002

This review is from: The Explorer's Guide to Algonquin Park (Paperback)
Easy to follow guide for planning a family vacation to the Algonquin. Provides just the right amount of detail to whet your appetite for a trip without clouding the desriptions with too much detail. Not the best book for planning a 4 day canoeing trip into the wilderness but perfect for a varied trip including canoeing, cycling, hiking and wildlife viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars The book delivers on many exploring fronts, Jan. 16 2010

I was interested in finding information about hiking trails, canoeing and kayaking waters and dog sledding trails. The book provided me with all that information plus information about eco-tourism: best places to view wildlife, nature of wildlife and the necessary safety and security measures needed for protection. For example, individual chapters are devoted to observing wolves and listening to their howling, on bears, and on moose.

A chapter is devoted to the Highway 60 corridor and the activities along it. This is a good location to begin exploring the park for the beginners.

Besides, there is information about locations to see fall colours.

Overall, this is a good guide to keep while planning for exploring the park.
