Deer Trail Tour

The Deer Trail Tour is a fun loop around Elliot Lake, through Blind River and Iron Bridge. Following river valleys, this route is twisty and has many hills. Although surface treated, there are a few rough roads which makes this loop more suited to the adventure touring type. The loop is 120 km (72 mi).

There are many cool things to see and do on the route, and lots of places to stay and eat.

5 Things You Should Do on the Route

  • Visit museums in Elliot Lake, Blind River and Iron Bridge
  • Participate in the Elliot Lake Motorcycle Rally (June of each year)
  • Climb up the Fire Tower Lookout
  • Have lunch in a shady, scenic spot on the beach
  • Cross the historic 1908 Dean Lake Bridge
