Algonquin Outfitters understands that not everyone is ready (or simply doesn’t have the time) to go on a multi-day interior canoe trip. If your time in Algonquin Park is limited, Algonquin Outfitters offers a variety of day trips, starting from Oxtongue Lake or Lake Opeongo. Both guided and self-guided options are available. Or, you can switch gears and head to our Lake of Two Rivers Store for an easy bike ride, perhaps with family or friends.

No other trail offers the same, easy-riding experience as Algonquin Park’s Old Railway Bike Trail. Pedal for up to 34 kilometres past scenic views and watch for wildlife large and birds.
From Algonquin Outfitters’ Lake of Two Rivers Store, you’ll ride along the abandoned rail bed of the historic Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway. The trail passes through forests and a large meadow that was once an airfield, as well as along the shores of two lakes. Make your trip as long or as short as you’d like by choosing your own turnaround point and, when you return, stop in at the Lake of Two Rivers Cafe & Grill for ice cream or a meal.
Bring your own bike or rent one by the half day, full day or for multiple days from the Lake of Two Rivers Store. It’s a great way to try out the latest in bike technology, with options available for everyone: fat bikes, mountain bikes, tandem bikes, cruisers with step-through frames and, for younger riders, youth mountain bikes, trail-a-bikes and trailers.
You can depart directly from the trailhead at our Lake of Two Rivers Store and, upon your return, visit our Cafe & Grill – ice cream is always a popular post-ride treat! Bikes of all types are available daily throughout the season (May 1 – mid Oct.).
All bike rentals include helmets.
Don’t forget to take your camera! Many people spot wildlife, large and small, along the trail – even the occasional black bear or bull moose has been known to make an appearance.
