    For those who ride towards Muskoka. It looks like Swift Rapids Road is to be closed to off road vehicles. Large amounts of dumping and other damage. No access begins June 10. See "Save Swift Rapids Road" on Facebook

    Honestly, I'm not too surprised.

    I've ridden up there a few times and have seen the garbage, the make-shift shooting range just off the road, hooligans drifting atv's or other vehicles around blind corners, massive environmental damage making mud ruts everywhere, etc... I can only imagine the number of times the police have been called in there or the county has been complained to. I dislike all the rules forced on us at other public spaces like provincial parks and national parks, but unfortunately we have enough idiots out there that ruin it for everyone that apparently such enforcement is needed. One example is the nice outhouse the OFSC had on Swift that was pushed over and destroyed the other year...

    Anyway, thanks for the head's up. No reason to head up to that particular road anymore unless allowances are made.

    Not a very exciting road either, I took my sedan through it in a rainstorm. Good hard packed ground.
