Vehicle traffic on Manitoulin is generally light, although ferry traffic on Highway 6 can be heavy during July and August. Be aware of transport and logging trucks, slow-moving farm vehicles, cows being moved to pasture, and the odd truant animal.

Most rural roads are "chip & tar" in reasonable to excellent condition.  Gravel roads are re-graded on regular basis, and have light to no traffic, perfect for bike touring.  Hwy. 6 is asphalt.
