With so many beautiful routes for touring and historic sights to see along the way, Heritage Perth has long been a favoured destination for cyclists. The Perth Chamber of Commerce has taken this a step further by producing a number of rewarding loops for you to explore, but there’s one in particular that really “rocks!”
From the geoheritage displays at Civitan Court and Matheson House which celebrate the foundation of Lanark County, and the contribution of pioneering citizen scientists like Dr. James Wilson, to the discovery location for an intriguing rock type named after the town of Perth, and an underground mine tour at Murphys Point Provincial Park, the Rock Cycle loop will give you a new appreciation of Ontario’s Highlands unique heritage – our Geoheritage.
Stop by Matheson House Museum in Perth to pick up your guidebook for this moderate, 42km tour and begin your journey through geological time! Be sure to check out the other routes offered by the Chamber of Commerce too, and for additional points of interest along this tour, look at their Route #2, Murphys Point.
