En Route to Muskoka in the Fall: The Great Outdoors

Muskoka’s trail network covers roughly 4000 sq kilometres of rugged terrain. Vast forests of spruce, pine, poplar, tamarack, balsam and birch are easily accessible by some of Ontario’s best hiking trail systems. Many trails lead to panoramic lookout points where sightseers and photographers can enjoy stunning scenic vistas.

Muskoka is also a paradise for wildlife lovers. Birdwatchers will be thrilled with approximately 250 species to search for, more than 50 types of mammals and 25 species of amphibians call Muskoka home. Although there’s no guarantee you’ll see a moose or a bear, a hike through the woods will likely result in a glimpse of an otter or beaver, a woodpecker or a heron and perhaps even some deer!

Just north of Muskoka, Algonquin Provincial Park is great for those favouring an active lifestyle, and fitness fans will enjoy its nine interpretive trails. For those who prefer a slower pace, Muskoka’s full of tranquil forest hiking trails just waiting to be explored.
