Already a big success in BC, Alberta, and Ontario, Backroad Mapbooks is pleased to present their first Quebec publication. Dedicated to providing the most complete and detailed information needed for outdoor adventure, it would be unthinkable for us to not write about a province with such extensive recreation opportunities.
Inside this guidebook, you will find the most comprehensive outdoor recreation resource available for Southwestern Quebec. Locally known as the Outaouais, this is a diverse region that is a favorite destination choice amongst outdoor enthusiasts. The Outaouais is bordered by Abitibi-Temiscamingue, the Laurentians, and Canadas capital city, Ottawa. With a multitude of colorful mountains, rolling hills, deep forests, tame and wild rivers, and over 20,000 lakes, the opportunities for outdoor adventures are endless. Whether you want to hike or ski the many trails in the renowned Gatineau Park, take a week off to explore the lakes and rivers of the La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve on a canoe-camping trip, try your hand at fishing at some of Temiscamingues hot spots, or take a leisurely bike-ride through the old-fashioned and inviting towns that populate the Gatineau Valley, the Outaouais offers it all.
The reference section found in this book includes information on lake and stream fishing, paddling routes, multi-use trails (hiking/biking/ATV), wilderness camping (parks and conservation areas), and winter recreation. Countless hours have been spent in researching this book, making it the most complete compilation of outdoor recreation information you will find on the region anywhere. Presented in both French and English, this information is useful to anyone who enjoys spending time in the great outdoors.
The maps in this book highlight the logging/bush road networks, trail systems and recreation opportunities for Southwestern Quebec. A unique feature of the maps is that all recreation activities are labeled, allowing for quick and easy referencing when researching a specific area. Further, no other source provides as much detail and accuracy on the road and trail networks of the Outaouais. If you enjoy the outdoors, we are sure that you will have as much fun using the ackroad Mapbooks as we did in developing it!
