Dirt roads south of Gooderham

I would like to explore a few of the non paved roads around the hwy 507 area, south of Gooderham. I am unsure if they are too soft for my bike and skills. I am riding a DL650 with Anakee 3 tires (90/10 tires).
Here is the route I was going to do

I am curious about North Pencil Lake Road, West Eels Lake Road, Salmon Lake Road, White Boundary Road, Crystal Lake Road and the fire access road that runs south of Crystal Lake road towards the 507.

Any info is appreciated!

Salmon and Eels are fun and easy.

N. Pencil isn't suitable for your bike.

Not sure about that fire access road.

Have fun

Don't try and divert up the Old Hadington Rd off of FR 72 after Pencil Lake, it's not appropriate either. There is nothing really appropriate that takes you across from 28 to 507 directly, continue around the Eels Lake Rd to the Dyno Rd (48), up to 118 and across to Gooderham. I have always enjoyed the White's Rd stretch, although like the Fire Access Rd there is more and more improvements to the road surface which increases the traffic and lowers the fun meter. We were up there 2 weeks ago and after returning home and looking at the maps I wondered about Reid St.\Rd. out of Kinmount to Galway Rd. and then down to Allens Alley. The Reid Rd. part may be a bust but, you could swing down the Dutch Line. If we are up there this weekend I will give it a try and let you know. The Fire Access Rd will be fine after Crystal Lake Rd.

If you need anything else, just pm.

Life ain't about how fast you ride, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.

Many thanks for the info - it's very helpful. I am going up that way in the weekend after next, but will be by myself so I didn't want to get in over my head.
