Fall colours, lakes and highlands, and steamship history mark this one day tour in North Muskoka.

This tour is through the scenic connected lakes around Huntsville.  We start at Hutcheson Beach on Lake Vernon and make a brief excursion to the mouth of the Big Easy River.  Soon we meander through downtown Huntsville.  We stop at the Lions (Memorial) Park and may partake in the magnificent view, either by walking or taking a small historic train.  We then row on Fairy Lake, pass the Deerhurst Resort, the site of the G8 Conference in 2010, to the canal cut.  After traversing the canal, we scull on Peninsular (Pen) Lake to the North Portage where a small train used to take passengers to Lake of Bays.  Finally we finish on a sandy beach of a hotel on the north side of Peninsular Lake.  The distance is about 25 km.
