Quite unexpectedly, it looks like a project in Bancroft requires my immediate attention, so I'll be riding much of the day tomorrow.
Will probably stop in at the Den on the way home. See you FF's there.

.

What I expect I'll ride Saturday:

https://maps.google.ca/maps?saddr=Un...,19,20,22&z=11
.

Google maps does not show Troutspawn all the way to Livingston Lake any more, so I had to show A as the starting point. E is the Wolfden. Just imagine there's a wonky line between E and A.

Zen says she may do much of the same, but at a more 'scenic' pace.

You may also be able to hook up with us in Dorset.
The party Sat night is not to be missed...........
I'll keep you posted, Gary. I've managed to tweak my sched to get out around 7pm but that still puts me on the highway after sundown. I may just head North until hypothermia sets in and find somewhere to stay and do the rest in the am.

Good looking route, Ferd!

How deep is the water crossing on Troutspawn Rd?

How much of it is gravel? Dirt?

This big pig I'm riding has limited my dirt riding.......gravel is fine!

Troutspawn is fine for you, just a few sandy patches. But I have not been there in the last month or so, so not sure about water levels. There's usually just one crossing, and that's not generally bad.
The forestry road south of Ril lake is really nice, not sure about Old Wagon, but I can direct you to an alternate for that section if necessary.
And the section west of 11 has an old church and community hall that we came across - pretty cool.
There are lots of points along the way to bail to main roads.

Gary and the gang are there already and did troutspawn today, they say there no water except a few random puddles, old wagon d=should be fine for the 800 Robbie, unless it got washed out bad this spring.

Thanks for the route.

I ride up towards gooderham and kinmount quite often on my own to ride some fireroads so finding a new route looks like fun.

Although my weestrom is to big for me so it does enjoy napping often.

Muskoka Colour report.

The trees just started turning last weekend, with only about 25% of the trees starting to turn.
All the pine trees are still green.

Took a ride this evening out through Terra Nova park and the trees are beginning to turn, with a few bright red trees scattered around. Got to love fall riding!
