Make the most of cooler temperatures

As the days become shorter and the chill in the evening air becomes more pronounced, it’s clear that summer has come to an end and fall is on its way. It will soon be time to trade in the hot weather and summer relaxation for cooler temperatures and fall fun.

The combination of cooler weather and changing leaves means that fall is the perfect season for hiking. Here are 5 breathtaking hikes that allow you to fully appreciate Muskoka’s fall charm. Don’t forget a camera, because you won’t want to miss all the terrific photo opportunities!

Read on to learn more about 5 fall hikes in the Muskoka region.


Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail

1057 Milford Bay Rd, Bracebridge, ON

Wander along some of the oldest rocks in the world on this 2.5 km loop trail, considered to be moderately challenging. Over the years, glaciation, erosion and fire have exposed the pink granite surface of the rock, creating a one-of-a kind hiking experience on the Canadian Shield. Don’t miss the scenic lookout, which is considered by locals to be one of the best places to view the sunset in all of Muskoka. Be sure to follow the white ribbons in trees and white paint on rocks to stay on the trail.

Highway 35 – 12km south of the Town of Dorset, ON

With 11 kilometres of trails ranging in difficulty from easy to challenging, the Frost Centre is an excellent option if you like your hiking to have some variety. It’s easy to spend a full day exploring the mixed forests, large bogs, stunning cliff faces, and lakeside views that make up this trail system. The Fire Tower and Lakeshore Trails are recommended for beginners. The Vista trail, while more challenging, offers hikers a stunning view of the adjacent Lake St. Nora.

Muskoka Wharf and Peninsula Trail

Muskoka Wharf, Cherokee Lane, Gravenhurst ON

The 2 km Muskoka Wharf trail is an excellent choice for those looking to complete a less-rugged hike. This leisurely, stroller-friendly trail travels along the Muskoka Wharf boardwalk. The Peninsula section features rockier terrain and forested areas. Gazebos, benches, and picnic tables offer walkers a chance to rest and take in the waterfront views. The Children’s Memorial Gazebo, located on the water’s edge just off of the trail, is a perfect place to sit and simply enjoy the water’s peacefulness.

Ragged Falls Oxtongue River Hiking Trail

Hwy 60, Before the entrance to Algonquin Park

This is the shortest trail on our list, at just 1 km in length, but the beauty of the Ragged Falls more than makes up for the lack of distance. Named one of the 10 best waterfalls in Ontario, the thundering whitewater of Ragged Falls perfectly captures the extreme force of glacial meltwater. The waterfall’s natural glory is magnified by the backdrop of red, yellow, and orange leaves during the fall season. The trail is located along the Highway 60 corridor, just prior to Algonquin Park’s West Gate entrance.

Beetle Lake Trail

1035 Algonquin Outfitters Road, Dwight ON

Considered to be one of the best places in Muskoka to spot red-tailed hawks, barred owls, and ruffles grouse, this 5 km hike is sure to be a favourite among birdwatchers. The challenging-level trail guides hikers through an active beaver pond, bog, and stunning hardwood forest. A 100-foot rocky ridge overlooking Oxtongue Lake offers a mesmerizing view of the fall colours and is perfect for photo opportunities.
