Explore the most popular hiking trails near Muskoka Lakes with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Lots to see and many small rock formations around.

Spectacular view of Lake Muskoka from the top escarpment.

Beautiful clear water trail with multiple circle trails available for choose and combine.

Rated this hike low due to the annoying flies that bit & followed us the whole way even though we doused ourselves with bug spray. Nice lake views. Would be better to do in the spring or fall. I like shaded trails & this trail is open.

It’s a gorgeous Muskoka walk - woods and granite and soaring vistas.

Great hike, some uneven terrain and a good climb to start you off! My 10 year old loved it!

Tip - go an hour before sunset and go left on the loop, will bring you to the boulder look out just in time for some nice views! Leave about 10-15 minutes to get back with some light.

Beautiful area. I will definitely be heading this way again.

Great view and landscape. Can be wet and hard to follow at times.

I went in February and there was about 2 feet of snow and under the snow was a super slippery sheet of ice. So I definitely spent a lot of time trying not to fall. It was still very beautiful though and without snowshoes or xcountry skis it was a bit of a challenge. Nice to hike in winter as there was no one on the trail and it was very peaceful.

Great trail, bridges across wet areas are in disrepair with holes and tipped sideways. Signs up stating trail closed.

Easy trail. Good way to kill an afternoon

Ok trail. Easy peasy sometime you need rubber boots. Can get very busy in the summertime. Even though it's a sky preserve you can always see light pollution from surrounding towns.

Did huckleberry trail today, it was a bit confusing and trail was not marked well. however, with that being said the views and lookout are amazing.

there is also a side trail that is a dead end that overlooks hwy 118 and the massive rock cut with inkuiks (sorry can't sp) on top.

Great trail but again confusing it took us awhile to figure out the white paint on the rocks were trail markers and they don't lead in a clear direction

Easy short hike with amazing views of the lake from high up.

Beautiful trail Three different length trails, one of them is closed, the markers have not been refreshed. One can still use it but be very careful as at times it is difficult to find the white markers. Some crossings over the creeks have fallen apart, so you might get wet.

The longest trail is closed due to the wooden bridges over the swamps missing and rotten boards. Very wet. Markers quite often on the ground not on the trees, easy to miss.

Not recommended for kids under five or people with mobility issues. Look outs are awesome but the trail is not well marked, easy to get lost. Great for older kids and adults, lots to explore, views are breathtaking.

This is a great, easy hike with some incline/elevation so it is still a bit of a workout and has GREAT views. Really well marked. Parking available at the trailhead. The trailhead is about 400-500 meters north of where the directions take you in Google Maps though, just past the park/beach and golf course. Absolutely recommend.
