-Park at the Kagawong Park Centre Before climbing the hill to the next level, gaze out on Mudge Bay, drop in at the local shops, the little church, the museum and the art gallery. They are all well worth visiting. When ready for the Kagawong Loop, turn left out of the Park Centre parking lot and ride up the hill. Go straight through at the stop sign and onto #540. Take time to visit one of Manitoulin’s finest attractions Bridal Veil Falls, on your left (Hiking options along the river). Continue south on #540 and turn right onto Lakeshore Rd. Enjoy the views of Lake Kagawong. Turn left onto Con. 8 and follow this 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 a left hand bend and up a little grade, you come to Newburn Rd. (Roadies should stay on #540, back into Kagawong, unless you do not mind a little gravel). Turn right onto Newburn Rd. and then left onto Graham Rd. On your right, you see the old Newburn Farm with the lovely alpacas that now call it home. Follow this gravel road down the bluff to "Ontario's Prettiest Village" and back to the Park Centre. Now for the real challenge the trip to Maple Point. Take Main St. west. The name of this road changes to Lebar Rd., 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 Range “A” Sd. Rd. Now back to Kagawong.
