King's Highway 125, commonly referred to as Highway 125, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is the second northernmost provincial highway in Ontario, behind Secondary Highway 599. The 13-kilometre (8.1 mi) route connects Highway 105 in Red Lake with Cochenour to the northeast.
Route description [ edit ]
Highway 125 is 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) long and travels from Highway 105 in Red Lake to the ferry docks in the Cochenour/McKenzie Island area. Beyond Cochenour and Balmertown, unmaintained forestry roads travel northwards to Pikangikum, and link to winter/ice roads that service communities even further north. The only provincially maintained highway that travels further north is secondary Highway 599 to Pickle Lake.
Despite connecting two nearby communities, the majority of the route is rural in nature; only the final kilometre is within a built-up area.
