Lake to Lake

Easily accessible via public transit from Toronto, this overnight loop is a great way for bikepackers in the GTA to get away for the weekend. Utilizing the extensive trail networks through the York and Durham regions, the course winds its way through 240 kilometres of Ontario countryside. You’ll ride a variety of hiking trail, horse trail, rail trail, mountain bike singletrack, and a variety of back roads. Each day is technically challenging with a number of steep off-road sections, so two-inch tires or bigger are recommended.

This route has been created by Michael Nyby.

The Lake to Lake was not created by the team at Bikepack Adventures. It being featured on this website is for informational purposes only and to give a full picture of the amazing rides in the region. 

For more detailed information on this route, including the latest updates to the route, refer to the RideWithGPS files for the two routes: Sibbald Point to Pickering and Pickering to Sibbald Point.

    Hey I think the “Ride Notes” section is talking about the GNR rather than the Lake to Lake ride FYI!

      You were right. It seems I forgot to delete and change the information for many of the tabs. I don’t know how I didn’t notice before publishing. Thanks for the heads up.
