Update

A great challenging loop around Fanshawe Lake.

Greg Masse

Overview

The fee to get into the park is $12 for a day pass.

This is an alternating day loop. Even days loop clockwise. Odd, counter-clockwise.
Helmets are mandatory.

There are two low water crossings on the Lake Trail, one over Wye Creek and one just South of the Thorndale bridge on the west side of the Thames River. When the reservoir and river are high, these sections of the trail may be impassable, in which case you'll be asked to double back. See current flows and water levels for Wye Creek.
One of the best long loops in southern Ontario on a very well maintained trail system. Great views of Fanshawe Lake and a nice visitor center.

Need to Know

Pay attention to which way you are supposed to ride the loop. Some people get pretty upset about it.

There are many features throughout the trail, clearly marked such as Monkey Wrench.

Description

This is a great 20km loop featuring rocks, roots, nice inclines, but nothing that will overly stress you. A great workout.

If you're looking for and additional challenge, there are several advanced areas, such as Monkey Wrench with many obstacles such as log rides, roll-overs, teeter toters and places to get some air. This system boats decent markings for most of the trail, but can be confusing the first time as you go off the singletrack onto a pretty busy couple of roads and a few cottage roads. Better signage would be much appreciated, especially for newbies!
