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 self-guided and guided options are available. Or switch gears and head to our Lake of Two Rivers Store for an easy bike ride 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 small.
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 (stop to look for blueberries here in mid-summer!), and 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 Restaurant 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 a step-through frame and, for younger riders, youth mountain bikes, trail-a-bikes and trailers. No reservations needed.
Departing directly from the trail head at our Lake of Two Rivers Store and Cafe (ice cream is always a popular treat after your ride). Available daily throughout the season (May 1 – mid Oct.). No reservations required.
All bike rentals include a helmet.
Don’t forget to bring along your camera as many people spot wildlife, large and small, along the trail – even the occasional black bear or bull moose.
