The Stepping Stones Trails

Every year for my birthday, I like to do something fun with my family and friends. In recent years I’ve tried to do some sort of outdoor activity. So for my birthday in December 2020 I decided that we would go hiking along the Stepping Stones Trails and see what they were all about.......

A New Winter Multi-Use Trail To Enjoy

Exploring Driftwood Provincial Park!

Driftwood provincial Park is located along the Ottawa River and Highway 17, just north west of Deep River, in the Upper Ottawa Valley area of Ontario.

The Canoe Guy Story

I spend a lot of time at Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park, as many of you already know. In recent years I’ve done mostly day trips to the park.

The park has always had a great winter program, but over the past several years, Arrowhead has become famous for it’s winter activities! So when I found myself traveling through the Huntsville area in December 2019, on what happened to be the park’s winter season opening day, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take a drive into the park, and check out winter at Arrowhead.......
