For anyone planning to paddle the Grand River, this is a horrible book as it does not give an account of what to expect along the way. It is very obvious that this book is to promote the Grand River Conservation Authority more than it is about paddling the actual river. The book only starts at Belwood and totally leaves out anything north of there hence leaving out the first 60+ km of the Grand River. Portage information is missing from the first couple of maps, which is very important through Fergus and Elora. There needs to be a detailed account of paddling the entire Grand River and this definitely is not. Unfortunately there is nothing else out there that details a paddle of the entire Grand River, so this is your only option. The other thing that is rather annoying is the coordinate system they chose to use. The default on most GPSes is Degrees Minutes Decial Minutes and not the format they use, plus they start with the west first where EVERYONE always starts with the north and then west. The good, it does tell you what sights you will encounter along the way. Borrow the book from the library to see if it is useful for you.

This book has amazing maps and a thorough outline of what you will encounter along the Grand River on an outing. I used it to plan a trip from Brantford to the lake. It could use an update, as the information on camping areas is limited. You also have to be careful about following the timelines for each section--they are not necessarily accurate. But as a planning resource for experiencing the river, it's the best there is.
