THE CHAMPLAIN ROAD, northern route of the three roads from New France to Huronia and taken by Samuel de Champlain on his trip to the Huron Country, in 1615. It commenced at Quebec, followed the St. Lawrence to the mouth of the Ottawa, thence up the Ottawa to a point close to Lake Nipissing, across the Nipissing to the French River and into what is now Georgian Bay, a circuitous route, about 700 miles of portage and waterways; but the only remaining road not permanently closed by the Iroquois.
