Alberta Route Information.

Canadian Canoe Routes information for Alberta comes from several sources.
CCR provides two means by which members may post their trip reports, the Routes section and the Trip Reports folder.
As well, I have gleaned information from the web and from books; these results are posted in the Forum threads.

With help from anonymous, D.R.Zandee and dunkin’, I designed four regions in which to file Route entries. The regions (which are based on drainage basins in order to minimise cross-listing) are shown on Marilyn’s clickable map in CCR’s Routes section, at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/410%20 ... anoeroutes

Alberta Routes section.
The link above, that is
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/410%20 ... anoeroutes

Alberta Trip Reports folder.
http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewforum.php?f=110
I go through the folder each year and post corresponding Route entries in the Forum threads listed below; please note that members may have posted reports since my last scan (the date of which is given in the TR folder).

Alberta Forum threads.
Ed notes:
1. Again, the information comes from the web and from books.
2. To reduce cross-listing, Routes with significant reaches in more than one region are filed in the paragraph Routes with ... below.
3. The limit of 60,000 characters required more than one post for some threads.
4. The sort of regions in the following is north-south, rather than alphabetical.
Peace/Slave, Buffalo and Hay basins.

Athabasca and Beaver basins.
