Where to Ride in Muskoka

National Geographic called it their number-one summer trip. Here's how to make it yours!

Muskoka is not the type of place you visit once; there is an endearing quality about the area that makes it impossible to forget. If you really want to see some of the hidden treasures in Cottage Country, an ATV is the only way to get the full experience of National Geographpic's number one pick for the Top 10 Best Trips of Summer 2011.

Muskoka offers plenty of opportunities for the avid ATV rider, and those just wanting to try it out.

Backcountry Tours offers packages including a stay at the Hidden Valley Resort after a guided ATV tour of some of the most beautiful, scenic parts of Muskoka.

For those who are more familiar with the sport, a ride on the Baxter Severn ATV Trails with a rental ATV from Redline Outdoors puts you in charge, simply follow the marked trail for some fantastic vistas.

The ATV enthusiast will enjoy  the trails maintained by the Algonquin West ATV Club beginning just outside Huntsville, keeping you busy for a few days of off-road heaven.

No matter what part of Muskoka you choose as your destination, the views of peaceful lakes, the sounds of the Canadian Loons, and the smell of the pines will leave you wanting more.

About Mark Hamerton

Ontario facinates me; the farther I go in the bush, the more I feel at home. I love showing people new riding areas, and the countless stunning locations you can get to on an ATV.
