A walk through the Muskoka Forest

The fall colors were at peak this past Thanksgiving weekend and you couldn’t ask for better weather. I was lucky enough to tag along on a nature hike with one of Canada’s foremost naturalists, Robin Tapley. The nature hike was courtesy of Red Leaves Muskoka Resort who have setup an impressive 700 acre nature preserve with trails for hiking, skiing and biking which will be open to the public to explore.

Another picture taken from one of the many trails deep into the Muskoka wild and marshland. I highly recommend anyone who spends time in Muskoka to take a walk through these trails. I noticed they are building a maple sugar camp in the bush which will be ready for the spring thaw.

    Where was the picture of the wooden boardwalk in marshland taken?

    That photo was taken back in 2008. There were nature trails that belonged to the Red Leaves Resort at the time. I am not sure after the changes in ownership who the property now belongs to. It was just off Peninsula Rd north of Minett on the east side.
