Algonquin Highlands is home to many of the best water trails and hiking trails in Ontario. Here you can find countless opportunities to canoe, camp, hike, snowshoe, ski, snowmobile, ATV, fish, hunt, cottage or just relax and take in the scenery.

The Township of Algonquin Highlands manages over 38 km of hiking trails, 26 km of nordic ski trails, hundreds of campsites, portages, area lakes and canoe routes. Since 2002 we’ve been successfully working to preserve, protect and promote our outdoor and natural recreational opportunities through a proactive, sustainable management approach.

The Township works in partnership with all stakeholders including the Townships of Lake of Bays, Minden Hills, the County of Haliburton and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
