Obabika River Provincial Park: Maple Mountain Route — a portage route through a chain of small lakes between Maple Mountain and Montréal River.

Solace Provincial Park: Solace Lake — fly-in to “little Lake Temagami,” a route that connects Sturgeon River Provincial Park to Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Provincial Park.

Sturgeon River Provincial Park: Sturgeon River — an exciting fly-in, weeklong whitewater canoe route.

Makobe-Grays River Provincial Park: Makobe River — a perfect long-weekend, early season canoe trip; fly-in and paddle out.
