The Rideau Canal is a navigable channel connecting Ottawa, Canada's capital city, to Kingston on Lake Ontario. This 125 miles waterway is a Historic Site of Canada and an Unesco World Heritage Site and consists of a chain of lakes, rivers and canals through the province of Ontario.
The app shows on the province map the main navigation route and the location of locks and marinas along the canal.
A page of each lockstation contains a short description of the locks, a diagram of the station and links to Rideau-Info and Parks Canada websites for additional information.
Lock images were kindly provided by Ken W. Watson who detains all rights over the pictures and diagrams. Ken maintains the well know website www.rideau-info.com which provides extensive information about the canal. Ken is also author of many books about the Rideau.
Cycling routes are based on the Self-Guiding Cycling Tours from Rideau-Info. Paddling routes are based on Watson's Paddling Guides to the Rideau Canal from the same website.
Let your family, friends and other users follow your trip along the canal.
