Nice ride. Rockwood is a friendly little town. We parked at Markleton and biked to Rockwood got lunch and biked back. Pretty views of the river.

My wife and I love this section of trail. I must admit, we usually take our bikes for an evening pedal. The railroad bed provides almost level terrain. The Casselman river is awesome and periodically you will see kayakers coming down the river. It may be myself and my wife. Stop in at the Mill shop for lunch.
