Margaret, McEwan Lake Canoe Route

This route begins from the launch site on Margaret Lake. A 338m portage connects to Dan Lake, then a 124m carry links to McEwan Lake. The return includes a 360m portage to Three Island Lake, and a final 667m trek to return to Margaret Lake.

Within one day you’ll have the time to paddle either of Margaret Lake’s McEwen or South Jean loop canoe routes. Individually they take five to six hours each, but done consecutively they can both be completed in a solid day’s effort.

It’s a particularly isolated area with limited overnight camping, so sleeping arrangements should be made in advance. This trail is part of the larger Haliburton Highlands Trail and Tour Network.
