It's Spring In Muskoka

Mother Nature was sure in a hurry to be done with winter this year. Spring

arrived with a week of summer-like temperatures that melted the snow so

fast it seemed to vaporize. We’ve since returned to more seasonable

temperatures but there’s hardly a patch of snow to be found anywhere and

the ice is gone from most of the lakes already.

In this in-between season, after the winter sports are done and before the

lakes are warm enough for watersports, you might wonder what there is to do

in Muskoka in the Spring. (Hint: there's lots!) Check out some of the

activities below for some ideas to get you started.

Golf – With the early arrival of spring, some area golf courses are already

open. You can find a list of local courses here.

Muskoka Golf Courses

Contact them for their Spring hours of operation.

Cycling - Get out your bike and take advantage of cooler temperatures and

lighter traffic! Check out the Bike Muskoka website for

routes and maps

Hiking – Spring is a fabulous time to go hiking! Less foliage means more

wildlife viewing opportunities. Click here for our list of suggested trails.

Art – The Group of Seven Outdoor Gallery is

open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

Downtown Huntsville – After you’ve explored all of the murals in the Group

of Seven Outdoor Gallery, why not check out some of historic downtown Huntsville's shops and cafes?

Local History – Head just south of downtown and learn about Muskoka history

at The Muskoka Museum at Muskoka Heritage


It’s open Monday to Friday from 10-4 (The Pioneer Village and train open
