Situated at the south end of the Canadian Shield, this Peterborough North route will take you through some outstanding scenic areas. You'll ride through a wide array of forests, lakes, rivers and streams. You'll ride around Kawartha Highlands provincial park and all its beauty. And in the north you'll touch on the southern part of Algonquin Park. In Fall the colours will blow you away.
This is a very enjoyable route, combining several excellent roads. In particular Hwy 507 (Buckhorn Rd.), the circular route just north of Haliburton (CR 14 & 19), Elephant Rd. and Peterson Rd. between Harcourt and Maynooth. For the most part you'll find lots of twisties, long rolling sweepers, and just a very enjoyable ride.
You must stop by Swiss Bear Restaurant & Bakery in Apsley for their to-die-for butter tarts. There are plenty of restaurants, plenty of lodging and lots of gas throughout this route. The larger towns are Haliburton in the west and Bancroft in the east. Relax, slow down, and enjoy this marvelous ride.
