Manitoba Route Information

Canadian Canoe Routes information for Manitoba comes from several sources.
CCR provides two means by which members may post their trip reports, the Routes section and the Trip Reports folder.
As well, I have gleaned information from the web and from books; these results are posted in the Forum threads.

With help from anonymous and Paddle Power, I designed five regions in which to file Route entries.
These regions (based on drainage basins to minimise cross-listing) are shown in the map at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/412%20 ... anoeroutes

Manitoba Routes section.
The link given above, namely
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/412%20 ... anoeroutes

Manitoba Trip Reports folder.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewforum.php?f=114
I go through the folder each year and post corresponding Route entries in the Forum threads listed below; please note that members may have posted reports since my last scan (the date of which is given in the TR folder).

Manitoba Forum threads.
Ed notes:
1. Again, the information comes from the web and from books.
2. To reduce cross-listing, Routes with significant reaches in more than one region are filed in the paragraph Routes with ... below.
3. The limit of 60,000 characters required more than one post for some threads.
