MUSKOKA

Transitioning from the wilds of the Almaguin Highlands to the Town of Huntsville, then back out to Algonquin Park, the trails in the Muskoka zone range from dirt tracks for hiking to paved cycling routes and everything in-between. Currently, the District Municipality of Muskoka does not permit ATVs/UTVs/Dirtbikes on their roads or trails so this area is exclusively non-motorized.
