Start this route at the junction of Rt.s 1 & 430. Head south on Rt. 1 towards Channel-Port aux Basques. Exit onto High Road at Channel-Port aux Basques to the ferry.
You start out along the shores of Deer Lake for the first 20 miles with some nice shoreline views. After Cornerbrook the rides gets a little hillier as you move away from the shore. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen, especially Moose. The route moves back to shore for the last 15 miles or so.
This a nice ride with excellent pavement. There are numerous passing lanes and some 4 lane sections around Cornerbrook. There are long straight sections and the curves are mostly sweepers. The elevation changes are not to extreme.
There are a lot of towns along this route with lodging, restaurants, and gas. Cornerbrook is a large town that will have just about everything you will need. there are 2 roads from Cornerbrook that lead to small coves on the shore with good food and beautiful views. Stephenville just off Rt. 1 has restaurants and bars. A road from there leads to the coast.
