Hiking north of Toronto is a weekend adventure for many Ontario outdoor enthusiasts. Most resort destinations (northofToronto) will have hiking trails nearby, and individual accommodation properties will have trails on-site, or nearby provincial and national parks where hiking is available. Year round hiking can offers the potential to see wildlife. Seasoned hikers may want to try a portage adventure involving canoes and hiking taking visitors deep into remote and wilderness areas. See canoe getaways and the Algonquin area.

Hiking Getaway @ Barry's Bay Cottages

Barry's Bay CottagesCloser to home, we have a short nature trail that makes a nice place to stretch your legs. In winter, why not bring along the snowshoes or we have some for rent. If you are looking for longer trail systems to hike, bike, snowshoe or simply explore there are several in the area. Trail runners and mountain bikers can explore the B102 off Otter Lake Lane or even the trails across from civic address 554 on Arbor Vitae Road. Further afield, the Bear Mountain Trail system is found 13 km west of the resort on the south side of Highway 60. It leads to a great vantage point and a series of trails at the north end of nearby Bark Lake. The Thomas P Murray Recreation Trails south of Barry's Bay on Highway 62 are equally impressive. Of course many prefer to explore nearby Algonquin Provincial Park where several trails are found along Highway 60. We provide maps and free use of the local Backroad Mapbook to help you pick (and find) the trail of choice.
