Inspiration for the route came from an old copy of Kevin Callan's 2001 guidebook, 'Gone Canoeing'. As a kid, I read with great intrigue about a series of lakes named after a childhood literary favorite, Winnie The Pooh. Lakes like Piglet, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl and Christopher Robin conjured up images of the mystical 100 Acre Woods and I always wondered what magic they must hold.
Fast forward 15 years to the spring of 2016, when I would finally live out my childhood dreams and frollick in the 100 Acre Woods with my own band of eager explorers. The plan was to push far upstream on Grant's Creek before traveling +13km overland to the headwaters of Bissetts Creek and following its course out to the mighty Ottawa River. Ambitious and adventurous, it would be one unforgettable journey.... ▶️YouTube/Explorethebackcountry◀️
