Left - Facing south along Peninsula Road (Former Hwy 632) towards the Hwy 118 Junction in Port Carling. This highway junction marks the original southern terminus of Hwy 632 as it existed prior to the 1970s. Since 1972, provincial jurisdiction over Hwy 632 has ended at the Muskoka-Parry Sound District Boundary between Port Sandfield and Rosseau. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north along Former Hwy 632 (Peninsula Road) towards Port Sandfield from the Hwy 118 Junction in Port Carling. The former route of Hwy 632 within the District Municipality of Muskoka is now known as Muskoka District Road 7. The route of Hwy 632 is signed with a green-and-white trailblazer route marker via Peninsula Road. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Distance guide sign and opening bridge warning sign on Peninsula Road, facing north near the Hwy 118 Junction in Port Carling. Hwy 632 was first designated as a provincial highway between Port Carling and Rosseau in 1961. It was one of many Secondary Highways established in Muskoka during the 1950s and early 1960s to handle ever-increasing summer traffic volumes in this popular vacation area. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View of the Port Sandfield Channel, facing west from the swing bridge on Peninsula Road. This artificial navigation channel was constructed in the 19th Century to link Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph together. A bit further to the north, a natural channel (the Joseph River) also connects the two lakes together. Lake Joseph lies to the west of the swing bridge, while Lake Rosseau lies to the east of the swing bridge. Lake Joseph and Lake Rosseau are among the largest inland lakes in this part of Ontario, and offer extensive recreational boating opportunities. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing north towards Rosseau at the Port Sandfield Swing Bridge. The bridge only has a single traffic lane, so motorists may have to yield the right-of-way to traffic coming in the opposing direction. There are no traffic control signals at this bridge, so motorists typically cross the bridge on a first-come, first-serve basis. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Eastern side of the Port Sandfield Swing Bridge on Peninsula Road (Former Hwy 632). The current structure over the Port Sandfield Channel is actually the fourth bridge to have been built across this navigation channel. The current swing bridge was completed in 1998. It replaced a much older steel truss swing bridge which had been built in 1924. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View from the Port Sandfield Swing Bridge, facing east. The channel opens up into Lake Rosseau a short distance east of the highway bridge. Lake Joseph and Lake Rosseau are among the most popular lakes in Ontario for both cottagers and recreational boaters. In the summer, there is no shortage of boat traffic at Port Sandfield! A small but scenic roadside park exists on the southeastern corner of the swing bridge (at right, in this photo), which allows motorists to stop and enjoy this classic Muskoka scene.
