Saugeen River Canoe Route - # 15
Uses: Canoeing/kayaking, fishing
The scenic and popular Saugeen River canoe route starts in the Town of Hanover (Hanover Park). It takes approximately 3-4 days to canoe its entire 102 km length to the mouth of the river in Southampton (Lake Huron). Since three of the four portages are located between Hanover and Walkerton, families or those with limited canoeing experience can start in Walkerton. During the summer, this is an ideal river for beginners because of its gentle flowing nature, limited rapids and eddies, and numerous stops along the way. The final portage is located at the end of the route.
Access: This river trail originates in Hanover Park on 7th Avenue North.
