    Anyone out there familiar with this trail west of 593 and south of 588 in western Ontario? I am trying to plan my GPX track for a ride next weekend and it doesn't look like Arrow River is crossable. Can anyone who has ridden this trail tell me?
    Here is the map. X marks the spot I want to cross!

    Maybe someone will find this to help you, but you may want to change your title to "north western Ontario" just for familiarity . I live in what we refer to as "Southwestern" Ontario and its about 1000 klicks SE of where you are looking, just local lingo I guess.

    Theres a bunch of people who live inn or know that area in the " Northern rides sign in" thread here.

    Good Luck, Todd

    Thanks for the local lingo lesson. Much appreciated.

    Dualsportmaps.com lets you load gpx files from your GPS that you have created or you can just use their tools to draw on the map, save the track, then download to your device and go test our the route. Best site on the web for this sort of thing in my opinion.

    Another righter PM'd me and said that bridge is definitely out and there is no crossing so you have to go around to the highway.

    Thanks for the help all!

    I have ridden to Arrow Lake many times,honestly it isn't a very hard ride. Didn't really check out your track.

    And yes, I live in the real Northwestern Ontario.

    "Thanks for the local lingo lesson. Much appreciated."
    It really is not just lingo, the previous poster was correct. "Southwestern Ontario" is for the most part, about 1600 km (1000 miles) from here.

    Southwestern Ontario has it' own coolness, but it is definitely not up here. :)
