The main route of the fur traders, from Hudson Bay to
Lake Winnipeg and the interior. It was adopted at a very early date, the
more obvious route by way of Nelson River having proved impracticable.
The Hayes route runs up Hayes River to Oxford Lake, and thence by a
series of small lakes and rivers over the height of land and down the
Echimamish River to Little Playgreen Lake, and Lake Winnipeg. York
Factory stands at the Hudson Bay end of the route, and Norway House at
the entrance to Lake Winnipeg.
