Canoeing the Grand River

This is a summary of the access points, portages and camping facilities along the Grand River between Elora and Lake Erie. Each grouping, or segment, represents a contiguous stretch, covered by one map in the GRCA book: "Canoeing on the Grand River". Numbering follows the book:

S2 -- Elora Gorge Conservation Area to West Montrose - 3 to 4 hours S3 -- West Montrose to Bridgeport - 4.5 to 5 hours S4 -- Bridgeport (Kitchener) to Cambridge (Galt) - 6 to 7 hours S5 -- Cambridge (Galt) to Paris - 4 to 5.5 hours S6 -- Paris to Brant Conservation Area - 3 to 4 hours S6 /S7 /S8 -- Brant Conservation Area to Caledonia - 7 to 9 hours (2 to 4h Oxbow alone) S8-1 /S8-2 -- Caledonia to Cayuga - 5 to 7 hours S8-2 /S9 /S10 -- Cayuga to Byng Island Conservation Area - 3 to 5 hours S10 -- Byng Island Conservation Area to Port Maitland - 2 to 3 hours

This summary of Grand River Canoe segments is organized for my convenience -- it will inevitably contain inaccuracies and omissions. You do need to take the responsibility to validate its accuracy relative to your own requirements since yours are undoubtedly different than my own -- the only one responsible for your safety is you.
