Left - The former alignment of Hwy 127 emerges from the woods south of Whitney. This old, winding section of Hwy 127 provides transportation enthusiasts with a first-hand look at a 1950s-era Central Ontario King's Highway. Little has changed on Old Hwy 127 since it was bypassed in the 1960s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Distance guide sign on westbound Hwy 60 at the Hwy 127 Junction. Apart from Whitney, there are no other communities between this point and the Eastern Gate to Algonquin Park. The next major centre along Hwy 60 is Huntsville, although the two small communities of Oxtongue Lake and Dwight exist beyond Algonquin Park's West Gate. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 60 towards Madawaska from the Hwy 127 Junction. Madawaska is another small community on Hwy 60 which lies about 19 km to the east of the Hwy 127 Junction. Generally speaking, the area to the east of Algonquin Provincial Park is a rather sparsely populated region of Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 60 at the Hwy 127 Junction. Note the overhead flashing beacon to alert motorists of the junction. There are very few major intersections along Hwy 60 between Huntsville and Barry's Bay, so this junction might not be expected by motorists, given the nature of the overall highway corridor. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Destination guide sign on westbound Hwy 60 approaching the Hwy 127 Junction. Although Hwy 127 does not actually go to Bancroft, the route does connect to Hwy 62 which leads south to Bancroft, and eventually, Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 127 from the highway's northern terminus at the Hwy 60 Junction near Whitney. From here, Hwy 127 continues south for almost 40 km to Maynooth, where it connects to Hwy 62 South to Bancroft. This is the first north-south highway link east of Algonquin Provincial Park. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Hwy 60 at the Hwy 127 Junction, facing east towards Madawaska. When Hwy 127 was first established as a new King's Highway along the eastern side of Algonquin Park in 1955, it met Hwy 60 at Poverty Lake just outside of Whitney. As a result of a highway improvement project in the early 1960s, the northernmost section of Hwy 127 was relocated further to the east, which bypassed the original 1955 highway terminus at Poverty Lake. Since 1962, Hwy 127 and Hwy 60 have met at this relocated junction. See an Enlarged Photo here.
