With PP closed does anybody have any recommendations for good crown land spots?

Hiking or canoeing.

The recommendation from all levels of govt is not to do any non-essential trips.

I run a facebook page for the Crown Land canoe routes in the Greenstone area.

However, please don't come up here until the Covid thing is in remission. The NWO health unit is advising that anyone who travels to Northern Ontario from Southern Ontario self isolate for 14 days. In the meantime, check out the maps in the photo section and the file section, dreaming about canoe trips hasn't been outlawed yet, and I'm available to answer any questions.

Depending on the community especially for the few crwon land spots in southern Ontario almost all parking access points are now now parking areas with tag, tow, ticket.
All PP, (that includes non operating) conservation areas, conservation reserves are closed.
Also many communities now have snitch lines up so people can be reported using the Crime stoppers systems.
Let alone you can not have a fire and the increased fines under a complete fire ban can be, and will be huge.
And you can expect no sympathy from anyone who tickets you.
Yes you could sneak out and might get lucky.
I would not post because that can be used against you for future charges when someone reports you.
Yes you take your chances.
On another point as long as people keep breaking the rules and driving places, the longer we will have to wait to get out.
Also on that point paddlers breaking the rules makes it hard for us when it comes to various paddle issues with the governments and parks because we all get painted with the same brush.
And this comes from a life time paddle fanatic, 52 + years now.
I have skipped school
Phoned in sick to work
Hurt others feelings all to go paddling.
This situation is different.

LOL ... you might be on the right track, didn't they find water there about 4-5 months ago? Time to get Elon Musk registered on this forum.

We have an astronaut from Maine returning from the International Space Station after a year. She might want to return to the ISS
