Hecla/Grindstone Provincial Park Northbound view north of the northern intersection of Hecla Village Road. Ahead, speed is reduced and PTH 8 officially comes to an end, though the unnamed road continues north through Gull Harbour. A cycling path will follow the road for most of the way to Gull Harbour.

Hecla/Grindstone Provincial Park Northbound view showing the “Cyclists on Shoulder” sign. With the two-way traffic on the shoulder, it makes for an unnatural feeling when cycling southbound almost against northbound traffic.
