About the event

Sunday | July 28 | 10:00 AM | Cycle

Cycle - MacGregor Point Provincial Park. Be prepared for rain or sunshine. Ride Details: Meet at Park entrance gate. Obtain Park pass from a library you belong to or pay a $14 day pass. Deer Run Bike Trail 3.7 km (50 minutes) easy: this trail provides cyclists with a safe way to travel through the interior of the park. Old Shore Road Trail 6 km easy (linear): this trail follows the Lake Huron shoreline and offers excellent views of the shore and beach areas. In pioneer days it was part of the route that provided land transportation between Goderich and Southampton. This trail was formerly a roadway and has a firm base for cycling. It serves as an excellent link to various areas in the park. Tower Trail 3.5 km return: The Tower Trail takes you around a wetland providing great opportunities for waterfowl and wildlife viewing. A tower provides a panoramic view of the wetland and a bird hide offers excellent viewing opportunities at water level. The trail surface is compacted gravel and boardwalk. Cyclists are asked to walk their bikes on the boardwalk sections. Kempfs Trail 0.8 km (20 min) easy (linear): this trail offers a connecting route between the main park road and the Old Shore Road Trail. It is named after one of the former landowners in this part of the park. Cycling along trails is recommended over cycling on park roads which can get very busy. Registration: For more information and to confirm your attendance, please contact Donald Andrew at 519 530- 9019, call or text. Level: moderate, experienced riders, as some of the trails are bumpy due to roots and stones. Participants should use a bike in good working condition that they are comfortable riding on varied terrain for 2 hours. Helmets mandatory.
