screaming heads

yup they are just up the road from me, passed them a few time never been there.
As for the park you can go North / South via hydro line (so I have heard) Starting just west of Deep River ( gas Station) and come out in Madawaska. Great camp site on the rail trail following the river there.

There is plenty of trail on the east side of the park from Whitney to Barrys Bay south to Maynooth.
Much of these trials are run in the two day Algonquin Trail ride. Most open stuff including hydro lines and two tracks and the B line are doable with big bikes.
From Ottawa head to highway 60 and from Madawaska you can go in any direction. May should be clear of snow.

I would really like to keep the track on the Ontario side, east of the park in the logging roads. exhaust pipe issues and all...... I just don't have any of those track and have no time to experiment my way through... You never know depending on time on the way back from north bay... the track would really like tracks east of the park......

All the info everyone is giving you is for riding area's in Ontario, in the Park and on it's borders. Me tinks you need to spend some time looking at the Google Maps, both satellite and road views. It's all there - and exploring those area's is have the fun.

shipwrek12001,

Just pop into the Country store in Madawaska, they will have the ATV map there.
I still have my cottage in town. You rarely see anyone on the trails and you dont need to worry about hot exhausts.

map

It is quite and easy task even you could handle...all you need is a map, one of Ontario is best for you. Then get your trusty crayon (color is your option) draw a line on said map. Presto you have a route that is saved on a map.
For a more detailed description please buy my book "how to draw a line dummy"

Try the Help option in Google Earth or better yet, look for a YouTube tutorial.

Or pay me 3 beers, I can be there within the hour

Of course the lesson only lasts as long as it takes to drink 3 beers. For 12 beers you get a full afternoon lesson...but it requires a drive home for me and my car. Throw a Mickey of crown into the mix and you get the full afternoon and evening lesson, you won't need to drive me home just provide a blanket on the floor somewhere
