Muskoka is in the midst of a big winter, with tons of snow on the ground.
Tons of snow means great trails and great riding! Most of the OFSC Trails in Muskoka are open for the season (see the OFSC interactive trail guide), and many accommodations in the area offer up overnight packages and specials specifically for snowmobilers.
To hit the trails, try one of Muskoka’s pre-planned routes. The Muskoka Magic Loop in South Muskoka (approx 125km), and the Lake of Bays Watch in North Muskoka (approx 200km) are great day rides, and popular routes among the locals. Remember, Saturdays and Sundays are busier on the trails, and the best riding experiences are midweek.
Skate, snowshoe, and drink your way across the finish line at Deerhurst Resort for the inaugural Muskoka Cup on February 23. Brought to you by Muskoka Brewery and Drink Inc. Events, raising money and awareness for the Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund.
Comedy Tour with Headliner Jeff Leeson
The King of crowd work, comedian Jeff Leeson will be performing his comedy show at the Gravenhurst Opera House on February 23.
