Algonquin Park is a huge Provincial Park a couple hours north of Toronto. It has held a very special and large part of my heart for my whole life. It is thousands of hectares of lakes, rivers, marshes and beautiful forest. I never feel more at peace than when I am in Algonquin. When I get stressed out at work, I think of being in Algonquin and all is good again.
My cousin Rob shares the same feelings about Algonquin. A few years ago we discovered that there was a public forest access road right to the heart of the park - we knew we had to ride there.
Here is a shot from our campsite to warm you up to this ride report:
Let's go back to the beginning of the ride. We agreed to meet at my cottage which is about 2 hours north of our homes in Aurora, ON.
