Written Directions

Starts a bit north of Severn Bridge off Hwy 11. Known as Southwood Road or Muskoka Road 13. Ends at Torrance on Hwy 169.

Scenery

Route through forest cottage country. The ride is known for curves and twisties not the scenery.

Drive Enjoyment

Most of the road is in very good shape and recently paved. There are very small sections of sand. Be careful and slow down crossing 2 sets of railway tracks

Tourism Opportunities

Continue north on 169 into Bala for large choice of amenities, fuel, food and water falls.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

To be included in a larger ride through Muskoka cottage county.

This is arguably the best twisty road in Ontario. Just watch for sand early in the year. Otherwise, a great road.

Left a incorrect rating on my other review this is to correct that...and a reminder that if you run this early in the season be very careful of the sand left on the road from the winter....other wise an excellent ride!
