Overview

The Muskoka area is famous for its natural beauty - lush forests, granite rocks, and clear lakes. Spring offers the year's best Moose viewing and you typically don't have to search very hard to see Moose. The application of salt to Highway 60 during winter road maintenance operations, attracts Moose to roadside ditches. Moose with salt deficient winter diets, capitalize upon this unnatural source of salt and chances are you'll see a half dozen or more of these magnificent animals during a leisurely drive along highway on a spring morning or evening.
There are so many trails to explore and wildlife to see! We can spend all day exploring the wilderness.
Our first stop will be at Ragged Falls - hidden gem of Algonquin Park! This is a short hike along the falls but the view is beautiful!
We will continue to Peck Lake Trail. Peck Lake Trail is a 1.9 km loop trail goes completely around the shoreline of Peck Lake.
After this will take a short break from hiking and will go canoeing for 2 hours.
Our last stop will be at Algonquin Visitor Centre. Opened in 1993 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Algonquin Provincial Park and the entire Ontario provincial park system, the Algonquin Park Visitor Centre has world class exhibits on the Park's natural and human history, a relaxing restaurant and an excellent bookstore. A theatre presentation sums up the Park story and then takes you out to the viewing deck from where you can admire a breathtaking panorama of wild Algonquin landscape.
We will drive from Visitor Centre back to West Gate before dark which is the best time for the moose watching along the HWY.
