Ontario Tourist Routes
Ontario has several Tourist Routes throughout the province, showing places of cultural, environmental, or social importance.
It is currently unknown if the majority of these trails are still listed since many of the provincial highways of Ontario were downloaded in 1997 and 1998, as the Tourist Trails followed the provincial highways for the majority of their length, although they did travel along county roads and municipal/local streets as well. Although many municipalities, cities, and counties still sign these tourist routes, others may have chosen to discontinue them with the highways they followed, rendering them as historical footnotes. If you intend on driving along one of these routes, please bring an up-to-date road map, as these routes may not be listed. Routes that are still signed are specified.
