This loop ride also starts at Lord Selkirk Provincial Park.
|0.0||Turn left onto Route 1 West as you leave Lord Selkirk Provincial Park.|
|1.5||Continue straight on Route 1 towards Charlottetown.
This is where you turned right on the previous loop. Cooper's Store is on the left.
|3.8||Stay on Route 1 where Route 211 angles off to the right.|

Most of this short road is unpaved. In a few hundred meters you will be going down a steep hill. From the bottom of the hill there is a moderately steep, short climb.
|5.9||Turn right at a T intersection.
There is a dirt road to the left, paving to the right. This is a lovely stretch of road, with rolling fields, neat farms and homes, all overlooking Orwell Bay to the left.
|8.1||Turn left at a stop sign onto Brush Wharf Road.
This is an out-and-back section, about 2 easy kilometers each way and well worth riding for the splendid views.
|8.6||Notice an unsigned road on the right. You will turn here on the way back. The old Orwell Cove School is on the left.
It is now attractively restored as a private home but still has its antique sign.

|17.8||Turn right at a T intersection onto Route 24.
At kilometer 18.1, enter Kinross and continue straight past the Dundee Road, which is Route 325, on the left. You will be making the next right turn.
|18.6||Turn right onto Route 210.|
|20.7||Turn left onto Route 23, the Selkirk Road.

If you reach a T intersection at Route 1, you have missed the turn at kilometer 20.7 by less than 200 meters.
