A decade of revival in the backcountry:

Portages, hiking trails and access

The backcountry travel landscape is always in flux as the forest and beavers claw at trails. Many travelers moved from popular routes into remote areas in search of solitude and adventure.

As a result, over the first decade of the century, many portages (all nastawgan) were revived. Adventurous trekkers constructed new hiking trails, including the tour-de-force, Ottawa Temiskaming Highland Trail. Add to that, courtesy of the logging industry, three new access points: one improved, and two re-opened.
