I rode out to Four Mile Lake last weekend. After Uxbridge the route is straightforward on the various rail trails, including part of the COLT.
However, I took the time to map out a better route out of the city than I have found in the past, at least in that direction. This entire 180km ride was almost completely on either trails, paths, or quiet dirt roads with just a couple of very short connections in between.
It was a cool start this morning with frost in some areas…I rode from Mississauga into Oakville and then all the way to Bronte Creek Provincial Park. This place has a nice network of gravel trails and singletrack running very close to the ridge along Bronte Creek. After riding the trails I turned around and rode back home the same way. It’s a nice place to go for a ride if you want something local close to home and if you don’t feel like going to far out of town.
