Frontenac Gravel Growler Collection
Created by: Kingston Velo Club
Location: See below and individual routes
This collection of gravel routes explores the picturesque Canadian shield geography of the Frontenac Arch and bordering lands. The routes go mostly through a mix of old homesteader farm roads and cottage access roads. There are numerous clear lakes, rugged rock formations and verdant swamps along the way. This is deer country and duck country. More than 70% of all of the routes are on unpaved surfaces, and upwards of 90% of most of the routes are on unpaved surfaces.
A 33-35 mm well designed gravel tire will generally be fine on these routes. Of course, a wider or more aggressive tire will make the downhills and soft sections easier. However, the hard pack and paved sections will then be a bit slower. A small heads up - the actual elevation of these routes will often be more than double the Ride With GPS estimate.
If you click on the "Show all on map" button at the bottom of this page, you'll see all the routes in the collection on a single map page. The naming convention and links for each of the routes in the collection are below. Links to each sub-collection of routes are also below.
