Left - Eastern terminus of Hwy 28 at the Hwy 41 Junction at Denbigh. Until the late 1990s, the route of Hwy 28 extended all the way to Port Hope, about 100 km east of Toronto. Although the southern section of Hwy 28 from Port Hope to the Peterborough area was downloaded in 1997-1998, Hwy 28 still remains one of Central Ontario's longest King's Highways.

Left - Approaching the Hwy 41 Junction at the end of Hwy 28 in Denbigh. Originally, this section of Hwy 28 was actually a part of Hwy 41. During the 1960s, the community of Denbigh was bypassed by a new Hwy 41 alignment east of town. A portion of the old section of Hwy 41 through Denbigh was renumbered as Hwy 500, which was subsequently re-designated as Hwy 28 in 1982.

Right - Hwy 41 junction sign assembly at the end of Renfrew Road 71 (Matawatchan Road) in Griffith. Renfrew Road 71 is a very scenic county road which follows the Madawaska River south from Hwy 41 at Griffith. Although the county road changes names and directions several times, the route eventually leads to Calabogie and ultimately, Arnprior.

Left - Madawaska River Bridge on Hwy 41 at Griffith. Construction began on the Madawaska River Bridge in 1940. Due to Wartime shortages of construction equipment and structural steel, the new bridge wasn't completed and opened to traffic until 1942.

Left - View of the Madawaska River from the Hwy 41 Bridge at Griffith. The Madawaska River is one of Eastern Ontario's longest rivers, running from the heart of Algonquin Park to the Ottawa River at Arnprior. Some of Ontario's finest natural scenery can be found along the Madawaska River.

Left - At the time of its construction in 1942, the five-span Madawaska River Bridge on Hwy 41 was one of the longest concrete rigid frame structures ever built in Ontario. Each span is 60 feet in length, giving the bridge a total length of approximately 300 feet (92 metres).

HWY 41 #11 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 41 #10 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Abandoned Hwy 41 alignment at the top of Tooey's Hill. Significant portions of Hwy 41 were relocated onto a new alignment at Tooey's Hill during highway improvement projects in the 1960s.

Right - Rock cut at the top of Tooey's Hill on Hwy 41. From this point, Hwy 41 descends quickly out of the Opeongo Mountains to meet up with Hwy 132 about 3 km to the northeast.

HWY 41 #9 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 41 #8 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The old Hwy 41 alignment at Tooey's Hill glides silently off into the woods near Dacre. Note the faded white centre lines. This abandoned highway alignment is over 1 km in length. This old section of Hwy 41 terminates at a cul-de-sac at the bottom of Tooey's Hill, a short distance south of the Hwy 132 Junction.
(Photograph taken on May 23, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Former Hwy 41 alignment at Tooey's Hill. This old section of Hwy 41 is the so-called "Dacre Magnetic Hill". Up until the 1980s, an optical illusion existed here that tricked drivers into thinking that their cars were actually rolling uphill when they stopped their cars on the downhill grade and released the brake. The combination of the highway's grade and the surrounding hills created this optical illusion. Unfortunately, the area is now so overgrown that the surrounding hills which created the optical illusion are now completely obscured by the advancing forest, which is quickly reclaiming the former highway alignment.

Left - Another view of the old Hwy 41 alignment at Tooey's Hill. This section of the highway was reportedly bypassed in the 1960s in order to preserve the "Magnetic Hill", which had become a local tourist attraction.
