PaddlePlanner is the first place I go to when planning a wilderness canoe trip. Throw away your string and rulers, the site's time and distance calculator lets you sketch out an entire trip.
The Route Finder is the best part and sets this site far above other research sites for mapping the BWCA.
People who don't use the site have no idea what they're missing.
To help plan and anticipate for a better trip experience, more information is better in my opinion, and Paddle Planner presents a great source of information.
Paddle Planner has been very worthwhile. I used it for hours and hours to plan my last Quetico trip.
The Route Finder is fantastic. I defy anyone to find anything so comprehensive that works this well. It's so quick and easy to modify, I will often use it for various 'what if?' scenarios.
Paddle Planner has it all...campsite reviews are helpful, the trip planner is awesome, and being able to download .gpx files are the icing on the cake.
Great place to start planning a trip.
Very useful. Handy for getting a quick look at a route and doing more in-depth planning.
Paddle Planner is the easiest tool on the net for quickly and effectively building trip plans for the Boundary Waters and Quetico.
Planning your trip to the Boundary Waters and a bunch of other wildernesses will be made much easier if you start with PaddlePlanner.com.
Easy way to measure trip distances as well as finding campsite and portage data along with it. I spent many years punching holes in maps with dividers. It's much easier this way.
For planning, it's the best site. Well worth the investment.
I found nothing comparable online and really compliment the creator on his dedication to building a great set of tools. Fantastic product (and I rarely give compliments like this)!
My friend told me about this website. He thought it was better than sliced bread… Better than any other BWCA website.
Paddle Planner is a huge asset when planning out your next canoe trip. I suggest it to anyone planning a canoe trip.
It's great for routing your trip and finding camp sites that may fit your needs. The route planner gives you mileage totals making it fun and helpful to calculate how far you'll travel.
Quality website that can really help you with trip planning.
This site is an indispensable tool to help start planning your next Boundary Waters or Quetico trip.
I was attracted by the Route Finder interactive maps that allow me to quickly map out a route and give me a wealth of basic information about mileage, portages, and time.
The Route Finder provides clear detailed information and is reliable information both on the screen and put into action on the trail.
