Secondary Highway 510, commonly referred to as Highway 510, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. The highway is 2.4 kilometres (1.5 mi) in length, connecting Highway 520 in Magnetawan with Highway 124.

Route description

Highway 510 is a short secondary highway in Parry Sound District which follows the Nipissing Colonization Road north from the village of Magnetawan to Highway 124. It is very lightly travelled, with an average of 120 vehicles travelling it per day in 2007.[1]

At its southern end the highway meets Highway 520, which also connects with Highway 124 to the northwest. It curves north between exposed rock formations and is promptly surrounded by forests. The undulating highway curves several times as it passes by the occasional residence of summer cottage. The route curves northeast to avoid a large muskeg. It curves northwest around the muskeg as Arrow Drive, an old alignment of the highway, diverges to the west. After passing back into the forest, it curves to the north. The route passes several grass fields and houses before ending at an intersection with Highway 124, 64 kilometres (40 mi) east of Parry Sound and 23 kilometres (14 mi) west of Sundridge. The old Nipissing Colonization continues north.[2]

In autumn 2007, the Province of Ontario reconstructed Highway 510.[citation needed]
