    Through Hiking in Ontario?

    I know of the Superior Hiking Trail near Wawa Ontario, but what other trails offer through (I keep wanting to spell it thru) hiking in Ontario? Most of the trails I'm familiar with (Frontenac Park) are short distance or offer no camp sites (Rideau Trail). I find the Rideau Trail pointless other than for day hiking as two cars are needed at each end of the daily hike so that transportation to accommodations can be made for the night.

    There's the Voyageur trail. It goes from Manitoulin along the shore of Superior. It has well established sections with sites in Lake Superior PP and Pukaskwa NP (I hiked it last summer). There is also the Bruce Trail but much of the camping along it is stealth only. You could also do the Ganaraska trail but most of it is roads except through QEII Wildlands.

    Both Killarney PP and Algonquin have backpacking trails.

    You could also take a look at some of the Trans Canada Trail and compare it to crown land maps to find some sections that are on crown land although a lot of it is on back country roadways.

    There are some trails along the north shore of Lake Superior, the Casques Isle trail comes to mind off the top of my head. There are also a number of trails in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. This link might help:
