One of the roads that runs (partway) across this corridor is Muskoka Road 13, also known as Southwood Road (which never fails to get The Mountain Goats' "Southwood Plantation Road" stuck in my head.
Along this road there is a place known as the Barrens. It's a small, open lake, surrounded by Canadian Shield and low-lying shrubs. It's kilometers away from any civilization and I'm told at night it's one of the best places to look at the stars, due to its lack of light pollution.
It's one of my favourite places.
