Trent-Severn Waterway

The Trent Severn waterway connects Lake Ontario with Georgian Bay via some of the most beautiful little lakes in Canada! The trip is also part of the "Great Loop" if you are interested in circumnavigating the Eastern USA.

Gorgeous cottage country Canada. Water is clear and great for swimming!

Sailboats will need to carry their masts on deck since the clearance is about 20 feet (6.1 meters)

We carried ours on horses I built. Make sure it will be secure enough to take a bit of bouncing from wakes as you cross bigger stretches of open water, lakes etc.

Plenty of nice overnight tie-ups.

One of highlights from an engineering point of view! The Kirkfield Liftlock. Giant tubs lift boats up and down. These are over 100 years old!!
Stacks Image 1635
Liftlocks contain the water to float the boats as well as all the boats, and it is all balanced on one huge piston. This is the original piston over 100 years old!

Regular locks with wooden doors are the norm.

A busy day in the lock. There are plenty of opportunities to rent houseboats to explore this system if you don't have your own boat handy.

Passing through a swing bridge. Most bridges are not restricted and open when you arrive.

Alone in one of the locks. Although it was August when we went through we were often alone.

What a view from your boat!!! Note how high up we are as we enter into the Peterborough Lift Lock!! It has a rise of 20 meters!!!

A tidy looking "cottage" on the system.

A great trip whether you choose to rent a boat or travel with your own.
