Hiking: Where can I hike in Algonquin Park?
Algonquin Provincial Park hiking trails fall into two categories: day hiking or backpacking.
- Day Hiking Trails: Algonquin Park features 18 trails for day hiking that range in length from less than a kilometre to over 10 km. (See the Day Hiking Trails Map)
- Backpacking Trails: If you’re looking for more than just a day excursion, you may want to try one of the three different backpacking trail systems in Algonquin Park. These trails offer loops from 6-88 km in length, have designated camping areas and are the only way to access some remote regions of the park’s interior. (See the Backpacking Trails Map)
The Friends of Algonquin Park publishes an excellent and inexpensive map with contour lines for the Western Uplands, Highland and Eastern Pines backpacking trails. You can order the Algonquin Park Backpacking Trails Map (along with guide books and many other useful park publications) online from the Algonquin Park Book Store.
