HWY. 625 from Longlac to Hwy. 614, Ontario

Hiya. I am looking at a Algoma type tour and I was hoping to make a loop using 625 from Longlac to Manitouwadge at 614 southbound. It seems to be a logging road.? or......what? I need to know as I am quite inexperienced on dirt/ gravel roads, I mean I can do it but I really dont want to get in over my head as I will be travelling alone and I am a small female rider.

I can pick up the bike but having to do it over and over....meh...no thanks.

How long is that joiner road?

Is 631 worth doing?

Any info on some good roads up that way would be appreciated and some info on well maintained fire roads or logging roads that I might try would be appreciated. I am trying to stay away from huge ruts, giant water filled potholes and tons of sand....gulp.....hey, gimme a break! I am just taking it slow!!

Thanks!

625 is also called the Caramat Rd. Last I rode it a couple of years back, it was just a standard N.Ont. gravel road. Fairly wide, dusty when dry, bumpy in spots, but not terribly difficult. 631 is, I think, paved. A reasonable way to get back up to Hwy 11 without going a lot further east, if that's what you're looking for after coming down through Manitouwadge.

Longlac to Manitouwadge is about 130-140 km. Unless you like doing little side trips along the way.

What bike are you driving ? your profile shows a Hyabusa ,definitly not the bike for these roads. I have traveled south from Geraldton to Terrice bay Last year ,all gravel and your typical logging truck road nice on the northern part but did get into a lot of deeper gravel as I went south.Sorry I cannot tell you much more about the exact route you are planning ..

I'd rather take the Mill road south from Longlac to Terrace Bay. Done it many times by car/truck. Going to be in Longlac next week and bringing my 525 EXC along. I'm riding wednesday and was thinking of doing the Mill road. If it means having company I could be persuaded to do Caramat. Been a while since I had sammiches at the deli there. ;)

Longlac Mill Rd.

Is that the road that runs partway along the Steele River? I was on a road location crew long ago and have wanted to get my bike on it. Is it well marked?
