Thousand Island Parkway
Cycling along the Thousand Islands National Park makes for an enjoyable day in the very scenic Thousand Islands.
From the eastern outskirts of the Town of Gananoque to just west of Brockville is just under 40 km (24.85 miles) one way. This lovely trail is multi use and is paved.
There are many areas along the way that offer great views which have made the Thousand Islands a world class tourist destination. There are a number of lookout points, some small towns, a public beach, historical sites and plaques, campgrounds, motels and resorts, and a couple of places to purchase snacks, meals, and something cold to drink.
The path runs along the north side of the Thousand Islands Parkway, a two lane highway which follows the St. Lawrence River. Access to the Parkway is well indicated on Highway 401. If you are renting one of i-Cycle Electric bikes you may park your car in our parking lot situated at Main and King Streets in Gananoque. We are the electric green kiosk.
The terrain in the area is relatively flat, the trail itself does have a number of long slopes, this will be of no issue to you as you have the ability to use peddle assist or you can let the throttle do all the work! At a leisurely pace, it should be possible for many people to cycle the length of the path (in one direction) in 2 to 3 hours.
Planning your ride
How far you go on the path is really up to you. You would cover more than 75 kilometres if you were to ride all the way to the end and return to your car.
For a shorter ride you could cycle to the small town of Rockport at the half way point, and then turn around. It is located on a crescent on the south side of the parkway. Rockport is a popular tourist stop because it is home to one of the area’s big tour boat operations which brings people out for a two to three hours cruise in the Thousand Islands. The village itself is very small, but does have a restaurant, a store, a few fast food stands and restaurants, a hotel, and even a little church. Rockport is roughly at the half way point for anyone riding the entire length of the path, so it is a convenient place to stop, if only to check out the goings-on, to grab a bite to eat, or buy some bottled water or other cold drinks.
