The Kukagami To Murray Lake Ride was the Second ride of the season for the West Nipissing ATV Club.
There were 18 ATVs and 4 Side-by-Sides with a total of 27 riders in attendance.
Under a sunny sky and a cool 12 degrees C, we left from the parking lot at 9.15 a.m.
We headed down to a trail that led to an abandoned track bridge where we stopped for a quick break.
From there we proceeded through Red Pine plantations and on to the end of Ashagami Lake Road.
Next we continued on a old mine road to Washagami Lake and then proceeded to Pine Falls Lodge at Murray Lake Dam and Bridge where we stopped for a lunch break.
After lunch we traveled on camp roads to a trail that were a bit rougher. We took a well deserved break at Murray River before proceeding on to the Murray River Bridge, then onward along the trail to Knowles Lake. After heading to Murray Lake, we stopped for a break.
Leaving Murray Lake we traveled over a trail to Dwyer Lake.
We left Dwyer Lake and drove down the trail to the old mine road and to Ashagami Lake Road.
The group continued on down the Ashagami Lake Road leading us back to our vehicles. We arrived back at the parking area at 4:35 p.m.
The total ride was rated as a difficulty of 3 on our scale, and everyone had a good day. All returned satisfied and really dusty from the dry roads.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day weather wise at 26C and I’m sure fun was had by all who attended.
A great ride for all.
