The canoe routes within the Kushog Lake watershed are historic native canoe routes which served as important access routes to hunting and fishing grounds until the mid-1800s.
The canoe routes of the Frost Centre Area, (e.g., St. Nora-Kabakwa-Big Hawk-Sherborne Loop), previously developed and maintained by the MNR are now managed by the Township of Algonquin Highlands, though the Haliburton Highlands Water Trails (HHWT), in partnership with the MNR and the Township of Lake of Bays.
