The Waterfront Trail is a 37 km touring route running alongside the 1000 Islands Parkway, providing a traffic-free option for cyclists to enjoy the stunning water and island views. This newly repaved path offers gentle hills popular for cycling, walking or in-line skating.
As you ride along the Waterfront Trail you will find the charming village of Rockport, located on a crescent on the south side of the parkway, in the heart of the 1000 Islands. Rockport is a popular tourist stop and home to Rockport Cruises. The village has three restaurants, a gift shop, fast food stands, a motel, and two 100-year old churches.
Rockport is roughly at the half way point for anyone riding the entire length of the path, so it is a convenient place to stop, if only to check out the goings-on, to grab a bite to eat, buy some bottled water or other beverages, and generally stretch your legs.
