CYCLING IN THE 1000 ISLANDS

bike path 2The Waterfront Trail is a 37 km touring route running alongside the 1000 Islands Parkway, providing a traffic-free option for cyclists to enjoy the stunning water and island views.  This newly repaved path offers gentle hills popular for cycling, walking or in-line skating.  

As you ride along the Waterfront Trail you will find the charming village of Rockport, located on a crescent on the south side of the parkway, in the heart of the 1000 Islands.  Rockport is a popular tourist stop and home to Rockport Cruises.  The village has three restaurants, a gift shop, fast food stands, a motel, and two 100-year old churches.


Rockport is roughly at the half way point for anyone riding the entire length of the path, so it is a convenient place to stop, if only to check out the goings-on, to grab a bite to eat, buy some bottled water or other beverages, and generally stretch your legs.

Rockport Cruises provides transportation to Boldt Castle in addition to its one hour Heart of the Islands tour, two hour Palaces & Palisades cruise, lunch and sunset dinner cruises, and themed cruises.

Rockport General StoreFor a real taste of history, be sure to visit our Rockport General Store. A true historic gem, it has a nostalgic theme befitting Rockport's heritage. Built in 1905, the store played a vital role in the day to day life in Rockport. It maintained accounts for the local people. Being a small and secluded community, it was also a vital factor in keeping the villagers connected to the outside world. Much like other general stores of the past, Rockport`s provided the residents with goods which would otherwise be unattainable, and was therefore crucial to a community with little outside contact. More specfically, a river community.
