The BT700

Mapped by Matthew Kadey

Summary

The BT 700 (actually 715 km, but whose counting) is a big loop in southwestern Ontario that uses a combination of gravel roads, rail trail, two-track, forest singletrack, rugged unserviced roads and just a whisper of pavement only when necessary. In an attempt to minimize the amount of time riders spend on paved roads, the route utilizes roughly 80% unpaved surfaces. It should be consider a mixed surface route and a bit more mountain bike oriented than a pure gravel ride. From the sunny shores of Lake Huron to the fetching escarpment country, there are many aesthetic treasures along the route.
