In La Vérendrye standard part of the ritual at the start of canoe trips is checking in at Le Domaine - not only to pay the requisite fees, but also to update whatever maps you may be carrying with the latest information, as marked on a set of topos at a large table. And a standard part of the ritual at the end of my trips is to again stop in at Le Domaine, to update the staff with any new information I can report from the field. They usually update their maps on the map table quite promptly, so I warmly suggest that all paddlers visiting La Vérendrye be sure to cross-check whatever maps they use with the latest information marked on these topos.

Cheers and peace.

That's a great tip Mr Boal - I did not know that and have been there several times with experienced paddlers!

I added map 8 which is called Circuit 25 but it is not really a circuit. It is a large area on the other side of highway 117

Well the map index on my maps shows me that I am missing maps 4, 6 and 7. I do not see a map 5 in the index.

Is anyone interested in donating one of those maps to this project? I don't really feel like spending another 30 bucks :-) They are about 10 bucks each.

If you are interested, PM me. You can call World of Maps in Ottawa and pay for one to have set aide for me. I live around the corner from there.

Buy me a map and I'll google map it :-)

Have you done circuit 25? Looks like it would be a nice portage free trip but I wonder about the motor boat traffic. A few boats here and there is fine, maybe just avoid the spring fishing crowd and go later in July/August and you could make a nice trip.

Thanks for posting this information.

Like I said they call it "circuit 25" but best I can tell it is not really a circuit. Click through and have a look at the map yourself - basically everything north of the 117 is map 8 and called "circuit 25". I have that entire map completed so yes it is there. And there are very few portages north of the 117, and the few that are there are very short.

Circuit 25 is all on the Cabonga reservoir, there will be some motorboat traffic but except at peak fishing season there isn't really that much and most of the boats don't stray to far away from the access points.

Later in the Summer when water levels are lower there are tons of nice beach camps available and because the area is so huge it's easy to find an isolated area. You might want to be as far from the highway as you can, it is the Trans-Canada and there is a lot of truck traffic. You would also avoid the bugs which can be brutal around there from late May to early July.
