Delta Loop: Jones Falls Tour

Cycle through 40km of scenic country roads to Jones Falls — one of the most photographed lock stations of the Rideau Canal National Historic Site.

This route begins in the village of Delta, and the Old Stone Mill National Historic Site (be sure to tour the mill before you leave the village). You’ll pass through Philipsville and the impressive stretch of granite of the Frontenac Arch before arriving in Elgin. Stop here for a break and a bite to eat. Ride on to Jones Falls where you can visit the Stone Arch Dam, built in 1820. Next, in the hamlet of Morton, pedal past a series of mills before setting off for the bustling mill village of Lyndhurst. Rest here before completing the final stretch back to Delta.
