Probably too late but check out Mayo Rd off Weslemekoon .
Yeah it was too late but we had a good time. Only made it to Old Hastings Rd as it was. We ended up riding the Haliburton Trail from Kinmount to Haliburton and then looked at the B and O trail (?) near Tory Hill but knew we would not have the time.
Neat little grave yard and that big bridge was pretty cool. Will have to try and get back there soon to do those roads you suggested.
Bumping this back up to the top. This area is a gem, and I am going to be headed out regularly starting May 1. Shoot me a PM if you are interested in doing a ride - I am working continental shifts and am free at various points weekdays or weekends. I am on a 250L until the Tenere 700 arrives. Cheers and safe riding out there.
I was just going over the routes described above. They look very interesting. I'm going up to scout them out pretty soon myself. I'd be going up from Cobourg.
Been messing around Skootamatta on the gravel lately. Also been around a fair bit near 7, between 62 down towards Perth.
The townships have been grading the roads, lots of loose right now, and very dry. Hopefully today's rain will fix that.
Hey Drif! Long time .. I'm back! I'm staying up on Bob's lake at my cottage... I'm on an 800Gs nowadays or my softtail.
Where is everyone?
I just rode down Bob's lake road today on the Honda.
Hit white Lake Rd off 38, and follow it round to green bay road back to Bob's lake Rd, then follow it out to the end at Bradshaw, turn right and then turn left on N.Anderson road to crow lake road. Beauty tour. I'll be blasting it this week, prolly Monday..
some roads i was on last summer in that area:
hughes landing rd, goes from weslemkoom lake rd to hwy 41
old hastings rd, runs parallel to hwy 62 and goes thru the coe hill area
I would be interested if anybody knows any other similar roads in that area.
A little further west of that White Boundry Road and Salmon Lake are easy cottage roads like Hughes Landing. Tallan Lake Road is more primitive, but still big bike friendly. If you are heading out that way, stop at the Border Town Market Cafe for breakfast.
Thanks for the info, I will add those roads to my list to check out this summer.
Hi guys, I'd be very interested in doing a ride in that area, 3-4-5 days camping ? Never been in that area of the woods. Retired, good to go any time. So far have been everywhere on my GSA 1200 ( Dempster/Dalton/trans lab/James Bay etc.) including allot of the fire roads between 11 and 17. Now have a 2019 KTM 690 all decked out and ready to role.
Smashley I'm located in Burlington, perhaps we could head out together.
So I did the Old Hastings road on Sunday. Left Cobourg early so I got up there around 9 AM. Very enjoyable and quiet. Couldn't go too slow or the bugs filled my helmet.
Yeah, bug season didn't start until a week ago, which is late in my experience. Wonder is that means more now...
Means you don't have to stop for lunch... flying protein snacks.
Welp, first bail of the year... mmmm I love rocks, dirt and trees.
Oh crap! You OK? I was going to say to need to tighten your windscreen but that is probably the least of your worries.
hahah Yeah I'm good. A little banged up but nothing broke except pride. The puddle was actually a washout. I lifted my front wheel over it only to have my rear wheel drop into the washed out part about 2' deep just big enough for my rear wheel to sink for a bounce. I got rodeo'od off the pegs and whiskey throttle. D'oh. Bushguards, handle bars and indicator. Rode home, soreness hit that night.. I'll be back out in a week with a lesson reiterated - if you don't know for sure whats in a puddle, STAY OUT OF IT! or GO SLOW. All good meng. Thanks for asking.
Thanks, I had to show your video to my wife. Now she believes that it's possible to crash as many times as I have.
