Lemoine - Odessa Loop

Trail information: 

Click Download Map for a printable trail description

 

This loop explores the countryside just west of Kingston, a ride on roads that are local arteries with the gentlest of hills. Start at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area north parking area. Locate it by driving into it west off Bayridge Drive to Coverdale drive, past rows of sailboats at Collins Bay marina and at the end of Coverdale Dr., left onto the service road into the conservation area. 

For this ride, reverse your drive into the conservation area, out on Cloverdale, crossing Bay Ridge Dr., and to the intersection and light at Bath Road. Cross and turn west on Bath’s paved shoulder, to Collins Bay Rd., which has marked cycling lanes. Turn north on Collins Bay Rd. Ride north to Taylor Kidd Blvd., and turn left/west. Taylor Kidd is a commuter route but has less traffic generally than Bath Rd., and has paved shoulders for some of its length, and traverses farm and woodlands rather than the urban strip. 

In about 12 km there is a T-stop at County Rd. 4.

Turn right/north and ride less than 3 km to turn right/northeast onto the Millhaven Rd./County Rd. 28. This road winds through farmland and countryside to the village of Odessa. Millhaven Rd. comes to a T-stop across from the Odessa Fairgrounds at Wilton Rd./County Rd. 6. Turn left, and then left again at the light a hundred meters on to go into the village, where there are restaurants to refuel, and washrooms. 

To return to Kingston, go back to the Wilton Rd., and turn right/south. This road with its paved shoulders takes you across the countryside to intersect with Taylor Kidd Blvd., where you’ll turn left/east to retrace the ride route back to Collins Bay Dr., to Bath Rd., to Cloverdale and back to the Lemoine Point start.
