Beginning at Markham Town Square, this route features the Oak Ridges Corridor Park Trail, a 1,000 plus acre park which is home to wetlands and forests. You will pass Mill Pond Park, the original power source for the first sawmill in the area. When arriving in the Woodbine and Major Mackenzie area, catch a glimpse of the massive Slovak Cathedral of Transfiguration. Ride through the lakeside community of Wilcox Lake and look forward to finishing at one of many restaurants along the bicycle-friendly stretch of Highway 7.
