Return to Huckleberry Rock

I don’t know about you but I’m real crazy about views. Have you hiked up Huckleberry Rock? The trail is a relatively easy walk from the parking lot. When you get to the top the views are breathtaking. I recommend the end of the day to capture some of the most amazing sunsets in Muskoka.  Information is here and a Map

Hiking Huckleberry Rock

The weather was absolutely phenomenal this past Thanksgiving weekend so I decided to take advantage of it and hike up Huckleberry Rock.  I was inspired to go back up the rock after I picked up a new book called The Hidden World of Huckleberry Rock, a collaboration between photographer Bev McMullen and writer Andrew Wagner-Chazalon. I had the pleasure of meeting both Bev and Andrew at their book launch last month. I highly recommend their book for the stunning pics and great stories on one of Muskoka’s best places to visit. If you have not made it up to Huckleberry Rock please put it on your Muskoka bucket list.

Huckleberry Rock Panoramic

If you are interested in hiking some of the trails around the Muskoka region then you need to check out the Muskoka Trail Council’s new website. Taking the Muskoka Trail Passport Challenge would be a good way to learn about the area and get some exercise in at the same time.  For those that complete the 6 trail challenge you will be rewarded with a certificate. I do not think these trails are overly difficult so even a novice should be OK.

Huckleberry Rock is on the trail challenge and this is a panoramic shot I took looking out at Lake Muskoka. Please click on the photo for a larger sized pic.

Climbing up on Huckleberry Rock

On a rather drab day this summer I hiked up to Huckleberry Rock near Milford Bay in Muskoka. I’m not particularly happy with this shot as the light was wrong and I never brought the proper gear with me as I wanted to save some weight. However, the timing was good as the Segwun Steamship was cruising through the bay on Lake Muskoka. The other object in the background that looks like a boat is actually a rocky island. You can see it better if you click for a larger size.

If you are Canadian – have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Huckleberry Rock Trail overlooking Lake Muskoka

Huckleberry Rock is one of the most scenic views in all of Muskoka. You can find the trail just off the road that takes you to Milford Bay. These rocks are some of the oldest rocks in the world, well over a billion years old. I will return in late autumn to catch some of the vivid colors.

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun. But, Mama, that’s where the fun is.
