TransportationEdit

Canadian National Railway served Golden Lake on the Algonquin and Locksley subdivisions. Rail service was discontinued in 1961 on the Locksley Subdivision. The Algonquin Subdivision was broken in 1933 due to an unsafe trestle in the Algonquin Park at Cache Lake. The section east of the break became the Renfrew Subdivision, which maintained service until 1984. The grades of both lines now serve at trails for snow machines, ATVs and bicycles.
