Discover Ontario cycling at its best - Port Hope, the Ganaraska River and beyond, ending with the Waterfront Trail along Lake Ontario. (30 km) Begin your Northumberland cycling journey in charming Port Hope. Grab a fresh juice and fuel up, then start your ride by heading north to take in Ganaraska River views. Visit the Ganaraska Fish Ladder. It's a fun part of Ontario cycling. In the spring, you can get off your bike to see thousands of spawning rainbow trout. If you want to take a little cycling map detour on County Road 74 towards Dale, you can park your bike at the huge warehouse which is Primitive Designs and discover finds from all over the world. Pass over the Ganaraska River, stop at Sylvan Glen Conservation area for a picnic and a short hike westbound along the bank of the river. In Canton, see one of the oldest churches in the area built in 1876. Round out the rest of your trip taking this cycling trail through farm fields, past heritage buildings and rambling country estates. Some of the most stunning road cycling views are along Bests Road, as well as the Waterfront Trail that runs along Lake Ontario. Looking for a relaxed tourism cycling stay?
