    Always been fascinated with old roads, getting into bikes made them even more fun to explore. This one isn't even a mile from home. Disconnected and became part of a county park in the 1960s.

The road is in remarkably good condition considering age and elements. It is narrow and lots of hairpin turns in disconnected sections above. It had a very dangerous reputation due to the turns, isolation, and proximity to the border.

    I thought I was the only one who explored old roads.
    Some time ago I bought a 1941 Ontario Road map- this is Ontario before the four-laners changed the scenery.
    Over the past few years I have been riding the Old "King's Highways" as they were known from end to end. So far I have ridden #2, #3, #4. There are some great abandoned sections alone each and I stop and snap a picture at each, IT's great fun for a pedantic old sod. If you are astute and keep your eyes peeled you can find old concrete culverts with stamping on them from the 20's. I have pictures of several.
    Sorry no pics.

    What happened in Picher? Storm or economics?
