Algonquin Route information in general.
Policy statement.
1. No coverage of Algonquin Routes is likely ever to be complete, but I consider that CCR's is now mature in that I know of no major omissions; some might consider it excessive.
2. As a service to CCR members, I shall continue to prepare and post Route descriptions based on trip reports posted at CCR.
3. But I have imposed a moratorium on trip reports posted elsewhere; that means the Algonquin-dedicated sites listed below, more general sites, personal sites, etc.
4. In short: For Algonquin Route information,
(a) consult the Route Information posts listed in the paragraph above,
(b) consult the dedicated sources (please inform me of other such sites) listed immediately below, and
(c) search the web.
