We stayed at the Best Western Plus Couchiching, which I definitely recommend. It backed right on to the Millenium Trail, a 10km trail from one end of town to the other. The free hot breakfast made for a great start to the day, and I also made use of their hot tub and sauna after the day's activities.
This was our first taste of cycling touring as a family away from home. We had a great time and hope to do more trips like this in the future.

Here are some photos along the Millenium Trail in Orillia. It passes along the Lake with several nice beaches and parks.
Tudhope Memorial Park
Paved path, dirt road. I like the priorities!
At Couchiching Beach Park, we happened upon a delightful train ride that was run by the Orillia Rotary Club.
Here's the view from the other side
This park had a lot of amenities including a beach, kayak rental, splash pad, and playground

A well-deserved cold treat on a hot day!
