Prince Edward Island Route Information

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.
We must rely on the paddling community to write most trip reports, but we can help in other ways. One of our initiatives is to search the net for trip reports and to post links to them, as described below.

Route information is filed in three posts
Circumnavigations and Routes in Prince County
Routes in Queens County
Routes in Kings County
Thanks to anonymous and Barbara for assistance in deciding the filing system.

CCR provides Route information in several places.
1. The old Routes section
(the regions differ slightly from those given above)
http://www.myccr.com/canoedb/pe.htm
and the new Routes section
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/419/canoeroutes
These sources will be merged into a single section, as we find time.
2. The Trip Reports folder provides an opportunity (other than the Routes section) for members to post their reports.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 82&t=37811
I go through the reports several times each year and prepare Route entries from them.
3. The three posts in the Forums
Circumnavigations and Routes in Prince County.
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=42380
Routes in Queens County.
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=37809
Routes in Kings County.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 80&t=42662

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)myccr.com .
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 Tom H, Wendy Killoran, paddling.net and Reinhard Zollitsch.
