Butter Tart Ride

Cycling Route

17.32 km

Everyone can enjoy exploring this family-friendly trail and the quaint neighbourhoods in the town of Newmarket. Settled in the early 1800's by Quakers, the town has many historic buildings, plaques and sidewalk markers. Your ride will feature the Nokiidaa Trail System which links several parks and green spaces. Look for the 'ghost canals' at the Rogers Reservoir, explore Sheppard's Bush and stop for refreshments on south Main Street, near Fairy Lake. The "secret family recipe" butter tarts at the Maid's Cottage Restaurant come highly recommended! Ride Rating: Recreational cyclists – mix of trails, quiet streets, and mostly paved shoulders on busier roads Family/leisure option – ride along Nokiidaa Trail from Aurora Leisure Complex to East Gwillibury GO Station Surface: paved and unpaved trails (limestone screenings) and road
