(50 km, Township of King, Town of Newmarket, Town of Aurora, Town of Richmond Hill)

The ride begins at Lake Wilcox, the largest kettle lake on the Oak Ridges Moraine, a significant geological formation created by glacial activity dating back 12,000 years. Make your way to the rustic village of Kettleby. Explore the nearby Thornton Bales Conservation Area. Families will love Round the Bend Farm, a working farm with activities and farm animals. Complete your ride on the Nokiidaa Trail. Nokiidaa is an Ojibwa term meaning “walking together” and it is a great place to cycle together too.
