My friend and I decided to do a run from Barrie to AlgonquinPark the past weekend. I had been keeping and eye on snowmobiling in the area and temps to see when the snow would be gone. The long range forecast was rain to sun. Finally the day of the trip it was forecast for sun and +12C. Perfect for riding. We left Barrie on Sat morn and took ShantyBay road up to Orillia then Rama rd up to Washago. On to CoopersFalls. We were going to go down to Victoria falls but after driving down most of the rod it was closed and barricaded. We travelled up through Hosey Rapids and then Doe lake rd. We cut up a road coming out on Hwy 118. On to Black River road. When we got to the road the conditions looked good. Some wet areas but really no snow on the road. We too off feeling the Adventure we had come for but wasn’t long before conditions changed. There started to be snow on the road. There was always a path through but the road was soft and there were Frisbee size sink holes. Guess I should say I was on a KLR and my friend on a 800 GS Well as the road got softer I ended up dumping my bike. Ok twice. WE kept running the road until we got out to RilLake road. Now from here on in I haven’t been on the cottage roads but had a good Idea and a Gps. We folled Ril until we got to PaintLake road which takes us pretty close to Dorset. In to Dorset for lunch and see if we can get some info from locals. Doesn’t seem like anyone knows the roads. We were going to hook up with Trout Spawn Rd and take it to Hwy 60. I haven’t been on this road for over 20 years. We ran the cottage roads which I had been used to up to Trout Spawn Lake Rd. The road looked wide open and only snow in the bush. Well you know the farther you go the worse it gets. We started to run into more and more snow.
