Lake Superior coast

Ed note: Route information for the region is posted also in CCR’s Routes section, at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/455/canoeroutes

Coverage.
From the US border clockwise to Sault Ste Marie.

Specific inclusions.
Michipicoten Island and the Slate Islands.

Caution regarding paddling on the Great Lakes.
Ed note: This entry, based on the Coastal Routes entry for other provinces, is included because much of it applies equally well to paddling on the Great Lakes.
Those of us with a background in lake and river paddling, even those comfortable in big water, might reflect on whether we possess the knowledge, equipment and skills necessary to deal with the different hazards associated with paddling on the Great Lakes. A course or a guided trip might be a good idea before attempting any such Route linked to below.
From what I've read, every responsible paddler carries at least a weather radio; many carry a VHF radio and are well versed in its operation.
