Over the past few years I have been assembling, what I think will be, an amazing Ontario bikepacking adventure. The loop consists of a roughly 400km pilgrimage through Muskoka’s rugged shield. Loam, slabs and remote lakes.
This was on the calendar last fall but the snow came early. I’m down for some weather but this is a pretty exposed and secluded loop and the call was made to hold off until this season.
All are welcome but this is a pretty advanced trip and proper gear and experience is required.
Dates are flexible and open to discussion. This loop would be best completed over 3-4 days.September 23, 2019 at 11:27 pm #821394
I’m interested, around when are you thinking?October 13, 2019 at 8:59 pm #821438
I was thinking of riding Uxbridge to Lindsay rail trail at some time, just one day trip as I can’t do overnighters at this time. I’ve never been to Uxbridge and am not familiar with this area. My question is where is the best place to park my vehicle, that’s closest to the trailhead ?… Multi day off-road bike packing trips is something that I always wanted to do, but for now I can only do day trips as I have to be back home each night.October 15, 2019 at 10:00 am #821441
Hi @singleandfixed I’ve ridden that bit of rail trail a few times. It’s not the best section in my opinion, mostly with regards to views and variety of terrain. It does get interesting towards Peterborough however, with big trestle bridges,
Here is a link to a small trip we did a few years ago. We began from the ballpark at the head of the trail. I’ll see if I can find a map for you. I’m not sure what the parking situation would be but imagine it’s fine as long as it’s not overnight.
I see you ride the creek. I have found that going up the creek or the Humber to the rail trail is a nicer day trip personally. You can loop it up quite nicely actually. You can find the route and others like it in the “Share Your Urban Loops” thread.
Have a fun trip!
