The park has excellent backcountry camping on an extensive, well developed, but often overlooked hiking trail network. The trails vary in length from six to over eighty kilometres, with varying levels of difficulty, offering you a lot of different options for a trip. Overlapping loop trails provide you with the same entrance and egress point but you can also put together an out and back if you wish. Trailheads are located on the edges of the park as well as along the corridor. Of course hikers can also take advantage of sections of the trails for a day hike.
Contact the park for permits and reservation information ($fees). A map of the trails can be purchased from the Friends of Algonquin Park. For more information consult the map section.
