Pinnacle Trail - Renfrew

This is a favourite ride for many Renfrew cyclists.

This ride starts in town and within a few km you are climbing up the Pinnacle to meander through farm country. This tour feels miles from town.

This is a great ride for the whole family, or for a late afternoon training ride.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful ride.



Park at the McDougall Mill Museum; ride back up the hill and make a sharp right at the top of the hill onto Albert St.

Take Albert St to Bruce St. Turn left on Bruce St; ride to the lights and turn right onto Stewart St.

Take Stewart St to Pinnacle Rd (1 km).

Turn right on Pinnacle Rd; there is a 1 km climb up to the top of Pinnacle Hill.

Follow paved road to T-intersection. Turn right onto gravel road.

Ride for 1.5 km to Cobus Rd. Turn right and follow the road for 4 km to T-intersection at Bruce St.

At Bruce St turn right and ride down the hill to Albert St. This is a heavy traffic area so be careful.

Retrace your route back to the Museum and spend some time enjoying the view from one of only two swinging bridges in Ontario.
