I've travelled highways 11 and 17 for years, hauling freight to the west. This year I plan on stopping in all the small towns and back roads to mines and lumber camps that I blew past for years. North of Superior is such a beautiful area! Hwy 11 drops down from Geraldton to meet 17 at Nipigon, then heads back north from Thunder Bay. I've always wondered why there was no direct route from Geraldton to Upsala, across the top of Lake Nipigon? Now that I'm retired, I'm searching for a passage through this area. Google maps, and Ontario Topo maps show logging roads running east from Armstrong, (Jackfish Rd.,) and north, and west from the rail town, Auden. Auden is north of the end of Hwy. 801, which runs north of 11 at Nezah, which is west of Geraldton. The satellite images show roads exist where the maps say they quit. Google maps however, also shows a route through the area just west of Toronto Lake, and south of Juneau Lake, but the sat. image shows that road ends at a river running out of Juneau Lake. (No bridge.) If you were able to get across that river, it appears single track runs from there to join Jackfish Rd. much further west, and then follow it to Armstrong. I know this is complicated, but if anyone lives near this area, do you know if there is a way across that "Juneau" River, and is the single track actually real? I am willing to ride to the river to find out, but that's what these forums are for, right? Thanks to anyone who has taken the time to figure out what I'm asking. I've spent several hours pondering this, and now it's become an obsession! Not something I'd want to ride alone though. This really IS remote stuff!!
