Algonquin Park

Curious about ridng east of the park all the way up to North Bay, looking at google earth there is a gas and hydro line that goes a long way. it looks as if there is a tral there. Any one know for sure?

Is late May too early to ride there, I assume it is ???

Is it in the Park? If so, no. The Hwy 60 corridor and the Barron Canyon Rd up to Lake Travers are really the only places motorized vehicles are allowed to go, including a couple of shorter access roads to places like Brent, Rain Lake and Kiosk.

Its a no go. Gated. Researched it a few years ago. Supposed to be some cool logging roads though that run just outside of the park..

If we're thinking of the same trail...got a google map or something ?

Wicked Looks like it

It looks like it is close to my place (Novar) huntsville area.
If it come to it I can give you tent space water Internet fire and beer. Not in that order may but either way a place to stay. Just one rule here. I am not in charge.

Strictly off the record, you can penetrate deep into the Eastern Park via the logging and hydro "routes". They are doing lots of selective cutting deep inside the park. My theory is that they don't want the general public and tree huggers seeing that.

Just South of Chalk River, at Duke Crossing, look for Orange Rd, to Archray Rd, to Bisset Creek Rd. I've been told you can make it out to Brent Rd from there.
