King's Highway 60 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 60 runs the lengthy distance between Highway 11 at Huntsville, and Highway 17 at Renfrew.  Between Huntsville, and Renfrew, Highway 60 passes through the very rugged and scenic Algonquin Provincial Park.  Algonquin Provincial Park is Ontario's largest (and certainly most renowned) provincial park.  Highway 60 was not affected in any way by provincial downloading, thus the highway retains its entire pre-1997 length to this day.
