Park at the Mindemoya park on #542 east. Cycle west through town out of Mindemoya on #542. At the first left hand corner you go right then immediately left onto the beautiful and quiet Lakeshore Rd., until you arrive back at #542.
Continue west on #542 until you reach Monument Rd. Turn right here and follow this road around the lake, past the pleasant beach and picnic area and Learmont Rd. Under the shade created by a wonderful hardwood canopy, you will soon see the lake again, and spot Treasure Island in the middle of Lake Mindemoya.
Ride until the road heads north and you reach the Cross Hill Rd. Here you turn right and follow a straight stretch of road until you come to Corbiere Rd. Turn right on Corbiere Rd. And follow this road past a great art gallery, swing left (east) onto Lakeview Dr., which very shortly arrives at #551. Turn right (south) onto the wide paved shoulders of #551 past the roadside park overlooking the east side of Treasure Island. Turn right at Hill Rd., which leads into the Ketchankookem Trail.
You will pass a number of cottages, a resort with an interesting display of wood carvings and a public sand beach just before the stop sign. Turn left at this sign and take #551 into Mindemoya. Visit the wonderful Pioneer Museum and Maja's Garden for free, right in the heart of Mindemoya.

Mindemoya is centrally located on the Island and lends itself well as a home base with access to many of Manitoulin's wonderful cycling routes. Mindemoya L. is one of the warmest lakes to swim in, as it is relatively shallow and features the legendary Treasure Island in the middle of it. Mindemoya has a Hospital and you will find all amenities close by.
