I don't imagine that many on this forum would know much about the Achray road in Algonquin and the area it opens up - it is rough - no question about that - but if it were improved I don't think the area would have the same value as an isolate, backcountry destination that it has maintained for many, many decades.

We last visited in the spring a couple of years ago - kind of a nostalgia trip that had its origins some 30 + years ago. What a great trip - we left the trailer in Pembroke before entering the Park and we were very glad we did - despite all the Wally Byam exploration hype this is definitely not Airstream country.

That's nothing.

From where I'm from, the roads are so bumpy they make your radio skip!

I'm a true bum, working less and living longer.
