DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS. TURN IT OFF! It will take you down an unopened roads that you can not get your rig out of. Last place to get diesel fuel is McArthurs Mills on the hwy 28 after Bancroft, and Kaladar on hwy 41 once you come off the 401, in Renfrew as you make your way from Ottawa and Eganville, when coming from the north.
If you like steep hills but have a good rig, be forewarned, that after coming from Bancroft on HWY 62 to Hardwood Lake is dangerously hilly. At that point the road changes to Schutt Road which is still quite dangerously hilly. Take this road to the stop sign. Do not turn off this road before the stop sign. When you get to the stop sign you will turn right onto the 515. As you travel along the 515 you will come to a stop sign. Turn right to Quadeville at which point you will turn left at the gas station. (Do NOT go straight ahead. You will enter crown land roads which will be part of the trail that the horses will be travelling on.) Continue up the hill on the 515 towards Foymount. Take this road only a few 100 meters and on your left you will see the Hunt Camp. If you go past it you will see the township yards. You have gone too far.
Or the long way with not many hills,
Take Hwy. 28 north to Bancroft and then travel on Cty. Rd. 62 to Combermere. Turn right onto Hwy. 515 and pass through Palmer Rapids and Quadville. At the first stop sign turn right. Turn left at the gas station in Quadeville. (Do NOT go straight ahead. You will enter crown land roads which will be part of the trail that the horses will be travelling on.) Continue on 515, 400 meters on the left is the Hunt Club yellow sign. If you go past the township yards on the left, you have passed the laneway in.
Coming from North of Eganville - or getting groceries - 20 min. drive
Take the 512 when you are leaving Eganville. As you are going out of town towards
Hyw. 41 anyways, you see the 512 going off to the right at the gas station. Take that and you would turn left again about a mile out of town, as that is the way the 512 goes. Sand Road goes straight ahead. Don't take Sand Road. Take the 512 on the flatlands, past Lake Clear and through Cormac, then up the big hill towards Foymount. You crest the hill and after Foymount you will see 515 Road. Turn left onto that and you will go down a long hill. (16 miles) You will come to the hamlet sign of Quadeville. Once past the township on the right you will see the laneway in to the Hunt Club. There will be a sign.
