One look at the map and we knew for certain, the first thing we needed to do was to tackle one of the red expert trails. We would need to traverse a few green easy trails and a blue intermediate trail to get to the expert trail, but we knew the expert trail was going to set the tone for our weekend to determine where we stacked up on the experience level for the area for the new riders reading this, we do not recommend heading directly to the expert level trails until you have reached that level of riding experience.
Limbered up from a few loops, we headed directly to the closest expert trail to us, the 96! Not for the faint of heart, the 96 lived up to its expert rating. It was a tough go, but we felt we had set the bar high for the rest of the trip. The VRT was an easy level trail, as expected for a rail trail—flat, wide, and straight. Lunch on the Locks. We followed the well-signed route along the water into Fenelon Falls, across the locks and to That Place on Cameron.
Parking alongside other ATVs already in the parking lot, we joined the KATVA crew on the patio for a gorgeous view of the marina, and a fantastic food to boot! The curfew on the VRT is 9pm, so we had to head back to our cottage so as not to disturb the cottage goers who back onto the VRT.
Cloudy skies turned to rain as we left the rail-trail into the bush and came out in Minden, Ontario. Like the 96, the Anson Mountain trail fell into the expert level. Steep rock climbs, tricky water crossings. It was a good work-out for our arms, but well worth the trip! Mission accomplished. What a beautiful area to explore! It made this section very easy to navigate. We followed our guides right back to the Log Chateau Park confectionary so we could take part in the monster-sized Kawartha Dairy ice cream cones we had been told about all day.
The Log Chateau Park ice-cream legends did not exaggerate. Day 4. Sunday was a blistering hot day. After a hot day on the trails, we rode into Fenelon Falls again to take in the tourist stops. Time to Go By Monday morning we were starting to wear out all of our guides.
It was a one of our grandest adventures to date, with lots and lots of new trails explored. We look forward to getting back there again soon!
