Written Directions

Beginning at Lion's Head, ON and following a 212 km circuitous route to Tobermory, ON, the Lion’s Tail is a destination route that encompasses some of the most breathtaking landscape found in Canada. It stretches along the spectacular coastlines of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron on Ontario's Bruce Peninsula, through winding roads and forests, past stretches of wetlands, ancient rock cliffs and outcrops, and sparkling lakes – a place where the soul can recharge with only the rumble of your bike beneath you. There is an abundance of road-side attractions where riders and motorists can stop to take pictures, grab a bite to eat, do a little shopping and immerse themselves in the local culture. Capture one of our dramatic Lake Huron sunsets as the evening winds down and settle into one of the many accommodations available on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula.


The Bruce Peninsula is overflowing with picturesque places to stop and take pictures, breathe in the fresh air, and to just be utterly astounded by its natural beauty. This list below will get you started: • Lion’s Head Lighthouse • The Bruce Trail • Lion’s Head Beach • Kemble Women's Institute Scenic Lookout • Sauble Falls • Sauble Beach • The Grotto • National and Provincial Parks • Lions Head Provincial Nature Reserve • Devil’s Monument Loop • Albino rodent

Drive Enjoyment

The Lion’s Tail is partially located within the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve – a UNESCO-designated reserve that stretches 725km from the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula to Lake Ontario near Niagara Falls.

Nice road with no technical curves, but being this far north adds a unique feel to ride. At the northern end the town of Tobermory is worth a lunch break. At least walk the harbor and check out the crystal clear lake water. You can see the bottom, even though it's over 30' deep.
