New Brunswick Route information at CCR.
First, a comment on our coverage.
CCR's founder, Richard Munn, started with Ontario Canoe Routes and went national only later. Since the acquisition, we have made strenuous efforts to improve coverage of the other provinces and territories.
Of course we must rely on the paddling community to write most trip reports, but we can help in other ways. One of our initiatives, which continues, has been to search the net for trip reports and to post links to them, as described below.

CCR provides Route information in a variety of ways. The two main sources follow.
• The Route Information stickys posted at Canadian Route Forums & Resources
Click on Discussion & Resources for the province/territory and then on the Route Information sticky for the river/lake of interest.
Once the new Routes section is up and running, we shall transfer all these entries to it.
• The Routes section at
contains more formal trip reports.
The Browse feature
gets you to a map of Canada. Clicking on a Province/Territory gets you to a map with paddling regions for that P/T. Another click gets you to a list of Routes in the region. We’ll fix things, but some Routes are filed incorrectly; check other regions if you can’t find what you want.
The Search feature ,
which accesses the same database, allows you to look for Routes satisfying certain criteria. We don’t find this feature so useful and shall likely change it.
We apologize for the misspelling of Fredericton (in two places, the map and the link) at
We inherited the misspelling; we have been unable to correct it for technical reasons. The new map and link will do things right.

You might look also at the Trip Reports folders posted in
Canadian Route Forums & Resources
Some paddlers post their trip reports in the Forums, rather than in the Routes database.
I go through these Forums several times each year and post links to the reports in the Route Information stickys.
Check out the note at the head of the thread to learn which entries have already been documented in the Route Information stickys.

In the final analysis though, CCR’s members are the most valuable source for Route information They are highly knowledgeable, highly experienced and eager to help. If you can’t find elsewhere the information you want, just post in the appropriate Provincial/Territorial Route Forum.

Route information (trip reports, links to trip reports, etc)
Statement of CCR policy regarding Route information.
If we can’t post the information ourselves, then we’ll try to provide the paddling community with easy access to it.
We welcome your contributions to our library of trip reports and other Route information (for example links to other sites with such information, in general just about any similar contribution to the paddling community); please post in this thread or send email to routes(AT) .
Statement of CCR policy regarding copyright.
Copyright to the original source remains with the provider.
Copyright to CCR's presentation of the information belongs to CCR Inc.

Thanks to Ken Corbett, tgneal, Tom H, Charles Leduc, and Reinhard Zollitsch.
