This route is a two-lane secondary highway that runs between the small Ontario towns of Echo Bay and Bruce Mines.
This route seems to have a little something of everything! You'll travel through heavily treed areas, farmland and some hills with beautiful valley views. You'' pass a quiet country cemetery and have the potential to see some wildlife including deer and wolves.
This road's pavement isn't too bad. It's getting a little old but is not uncomfortable at all. There a number of sweeping curves and there's lots of rolling. There's certainly enough to keep you from getting bored.
Once you leave either Echo Bay or Bruce Mines you're not going to see a single amenity until you reach the other. There's no gas or food anywhere along these 30 miles (which is actually just the way I like it). There's a great diner in Bruce Mines called 'Bobbers' which is a great spot to either start or finish your ride!
This is a very popular road with bikers from Sault STe. Marie and the North Shore. We ride it at least annually. While fully paved I wouldn't call it highway, its a secondary rural road, generally in pretty good shape. Very scenic, some nice curves, but if they tell you to slow down.. do so.
