The Nipissing Road is The Ontario Ghost Trail. It was once home to many settlements of hopeful pioneers, now is guarded by their abandoned log cabins and weathered barns. The Nipissing Road was one of a network of colonization roads devised by government of the Province of Canada in 1850. The road runs through the centre of the Parry Sound District between highways 69 and 11.
Parts of the road surface are now paved with tar and stone. This tour begins in Rousseau, but you can start it any place along the trail. The road/trail is excellent for the mountain bike enthusiast. The route offers a range of challenges from the "family" rider to the dedicated avid cyclist. Courtesy of Nipissing Road.
