Park down on the waterfront near the Old Mill Before climbing the hill to the next level, gaze out on Mudge Bay, drop in at the local shops for chocolates and other energizing treats. The little church, museum and art gallery are well worth visiting.
If you are ready for the Kagawong Loop, ride up the hill south on #540, take time to visit one of Manitoulin’s finest attractions, Bridal Veil Falls (you can hike the little trail along the river back down to the bay). Continue south on #540 and turn right onto Lakeshore Rd. Enjoy the views of Lake Kagawong.
Turn left onto Con. 8 and follow this lovely country road until you come to #540. Turn left here and treat yourself to a long, straight stretch of highway. Remember, #540 does not have paved shoulders yet. Just past the fairly sharp corner to the left and up a little grade, you will come to Newburn Rd. Turn right here, and at Graham Rd. turn left, and follow the road down the bluff into "Ontario's Prettiest Village."
Now for the real challenge - the trip to Maple Point. Take Main W. The name of this road changes to Lebar Rd. and then to Range "A" Sd. Rd. The road travels along the west side of Mudge Bay. Get ready for some flat escarpment, steep hills, & stunning views of the N. Channel. Keep to the main road until you arrive at Maple Point’s cool waters and beautiful views. Access the water at the end of the Range "A" Sd. Rd. Now back to Kagawong.
