Seguin Rail Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

This is a rail trail like no other I've been on. The rail line was built not for passenger or freight service, but for hauling logs — and it has hills. The Seguin Trail is also the major east-west spine of the 230 km Park-To-Park Trail (see links), which is envisioned to link Algonquin Provincial and Killbear Provincial Parks, as well as Arrowhead, The Massassauga, and Oastler Lake. Note that this trail is multi-use including hikers, bikes, trail bikes, ATV's, horses, and, at the westerly end, cars. NOTE: See the trail's Official Site for Permit Information and cost, and don't forget your insect repellent.

Trail Directions
Take Highway 400 to the Black Road interchange about 10 km south of Parry Sound. Park at the Ontario Tourist Information Pavilion, or the commuter parking lot. If you were to drive across the overpass in the NE'ly direction, and continue straight instead of following Black Road to the right, you'd drive right into the beginning of the trail.

Summary:
I have ridden this trail many times, generally as part of longer loops that take me to destinations like Parry Island, Salt Docks or the old 69 hwy. The rail bed is a major snowmobile trail in winter and some sections get a lot of ATV use which creates some big whoops which if it has been raining can be hit like a pump track. The last few km before Parry Island are really scenic, beautiful wetlands, some old school trestle bridges and a lots of creeks. The trail running east from the info centre to Sprucedale offers up a lot of different terrain. I've ridden it with my cross-bike but recommend something with bigger tires for the sandy sections. There are many trails and side roads that run off the rail trail that are worth exploring after all the Seguin is a corridor more than a destination. Oh yeah, there is a Tim Hortons at the posted trail head! Cheers R

Recommended Route:
I prefer running north towards P Sound from the Info Center on Hwy 400

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Salt docks single track
