Agreed. My route usually goes in from the east gate. Last time I left Algonquin the west gate had an approx 10km lineup to enter.My only suggestion: Go during a weekday.
Just looking through @shanekingsley big map and will put together a route. But I always go from the east gate to the west simply due to timing and don’t want to make the longer trek home at the end of the ride.
Ok, let me know what you come up with and if you need company. Only concern - weekdays will be difficult.
Lately I've been skipping Coopers Falls Road because even though it's super beautiful, the road has not been maintained very well.If I was still based in Toronto, I'd cut through Cooper's Falls and loop back at Gravenhurst, if it was just to see the fall colours.
Not sure if the tour buses will be going through there, since COVID has messed their ridership up.
There's probably other nice roads in the area, as well.
It's in Simcoe county and most people who use it are travelling to Muskoka county. It used to be gravel until the border.Lately I've been skipping Coopers Falls Road because even though it's super beautiful, the road has not been maintained very well.
Housey's Rapids road though was repaved not too long ago and is great. Uffington Rd would be amazing, but that is also really beat up, so I've been skipping that now too.
Please post your route and day/time, am interested and may join.
