The route starts at the entrance of Algonquin Park in Ontario called the West Gate. At the west gate there is a park office, parking lot and public wash rooms. Official start point is at the big map of Algonquin Park located of the side of the parking lot (see pictures). From there one follows highway 60 corridor across Algonquin Park until one reaches the East Gate of Algonquin Park. The route ends under the East Gate, meaning one has to pass through the gate to finish. The finish is very clear as the East Gate is an actual gate crossing the street. This is an iconic route, that is frequently used by bikers and runners. Algonquin Park is one of the most iconic parks in Canada and the landscapes are beautiful. Particularly in the fall, many people make the drive to see the beautiful colours of the trees and leaves in the fall. However, so far no FKT has been set for the entire distance. The route has a clear end and beginning and is known under the given name to most people in Ontario/Canada. Highway 60 is the only way to connect the west and east gate of Algonquin Park.
