The Barron Canyon is located in the Eastern end of Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. The Barron River runs through some of the most spectacular canyon scenery in the East. You follow the river upstream through arboreal forest to a set of small rapids then take 1/4 mile portage around them. Once back on the water you'll find the Baron is an old lumbering river still filled with many old sunken logs from a bygone era. The river winds until the canyon walls start to rise and take shape along the river banks. The pink granite walls of the canyon rise majestically and reach their pinnacle of over 150 feet in some places. The paddle is relatively easy as there is not much current and hidden beyond the short 1/4 mile portage is some truly spectacular scenery. The roundtrip paddle (Approximately 4 miles each way) from the parking lot to the canyon and back will take about 6 hours, but pack a lunch, your swimming gear and make a day of it!
Follow signs at the East Entrance to Algonquin Provincial Park and stop in to the park office they and get maps/directions or just follow the road signs to the parking lot and put-in site for the Barron Canyon.
