Hop on the Gravenhurst Loop of the Muskoka Maple Trail!

2019 Maple Trail dates: March 8 – April 26, 2019

The Muskoka Maple Trail is a Muskoka-wide culinary trail inspired by Canada’s most beloved natural product, maple syrup. Last year, the Gravenhurst Loop of the Muskoka Maple trail had two stops, and we hope we can grow this number in 2019.

1)      Sugar bush tours

2)      Maple breakfasts

3)      Maple Beer

4)      Baked Goodies, Sweets & Hot Bevvies
