Turn right to a lookout offering a splendid view of the LaCloche Mountains. After a short backtrack, cycle south past a series of industrial wind turbines and have a great workout surrounded by prairie-like grasslands. When you reach Greenbush Rd., turn left, cycling back to #6. Note the snake rail fences and sturdy old barns that line Greenbush Rd. One of the best views of the ancient, now rounded, peaks of the LaCloche Mountains awaits you on #6 at a second lookout. Head north on #6, glide down a delightful big hill and make your way back to Little Current. Take time to wander the waterfront and enjoy the yachts, sailboats, shops and eateries.
