A few comments since I'm familiar with the area - I'm sure your dry run will work these out.

Meet at Tim Hortons at Mississauga and Derry Road’s @ 9AM-10AM
East THAT'S ACTUALLY WEST on Derry Road to Trafalgar North

Then west on 15 sideroad to hwy 25 north to 22nd sideroad and back accross to Trafalgar. North on Trafalgar Rd (Turns into Wellington Road 24) to Hwy 24 (Wellington Road 124) and head east to 9th line, turn right and then left onto Wellington Road 52 which turns into Bush Road.

Follow Bush Road to the Forks of the Credit Road to Hurontario and turn north to Highway 9. Turn left on Highway 9. THERE IS THE COFFEE SHOP IN BELFOUNTAIN BUT THE PARKING THERE IS LIMITED. JUST EAST OF THE SWITCH-BACK ON THE FOTC THERE IS A SPOT TO PARK ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD (BESIDE THE RIVER). IT'S PRETTY THERE BUT THE PROBLEM IS IT'S ON THE NORTH (WESTBOUND) SIDE.
We will make a stop at Angels Diner. It is on Hwy 9 on route.
NEED TO GO THROUGH ORANGEVILLE HERE. AT HWY 9 & 10 NEED TO DO THE RIGHT/LEFT TURN. NOT A BIG DEAL AS VISIBILITY IS GOOD

Follow Hwy 9 west to 3rd line (CR11) and head north.
Head straight north on CR11 towards Shelburne to Hwy 89, jog right and then left onto 124 north.
IF YOU WANT SOME BEAUTIFUL HILL TOP VIEWS YOU CAN GO UP HWY 10 TO THE GREY HIGHLANDS. PROBLEM IS IT'S A BIT OUTTA THE WAY.

Reddickville marks CR 21 and we'll turn right here and start east.
THIS IS NICE TOO. BUT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CONTINUING UP 124 AND GOING EAST ON GREY ROAD #9. IT'S TWISTY AND VERY PRETTY AS YOU COME DOWN TOWARDS AIRPORT RD. IT'S BEEN YEARS SINCE i WAS UP THERE BUT I'M 99% SURE IT'S A PAVED ROAD. NOT SURE OF IT'S CONDITION. JUST A THOUGHT.

Turn right at Airport Road and then right again at SR 20, also known as River Road.
HMMM DON'T THINK I'VE BEEN ON THAT ONE. MIGHT BE GRAVEL

At Hornings Mills we'll turn left and head south again to Hwy 89.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO OUT TO HORNING TO GO BACK DOWN TO 89. YOU CAN GO STRAIGHT SOUTH AT KILGORE IF YOU WANT.

At 89, turn left and then right again at the lights at Hwy 10.

Continue south to CR 8 at Camilla where we'll turn left towards Mono Centre.

Continue along CR 8 until we're back at Airport Road (#18) - take a right and head south.

Follow Airport Road to Hockley Valley Road and turn left. Follow to the end where the country diner is (Adjala TLine).
THAT DINNER IS ACTUALLY IN HOCKLEY I THINK, NOT AT THE EAST END OF HVR

Get back on Hockley Valley Road and follow west to Hwy 10, turn left and head south.

AWESOME ROUTE!! S/B VERY PRETTY THIS W/E :THUMBSUP:
