Muskoka Hikes: Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail

Main Lookout Point

Fall hikes in cottage country are a must and the Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail is a perfect spot to view the autumn leaves this season. This is a 2.9km loop to a scenic lookout point over Lake Muskoka, Ontario that takes about 20mins to get to the top if you’re really hoofing it (like we were). Overall, the hike was easy to navigate (although I can see it being difficult in the winter if it was snow-covered), mostly because there were hoards of people coming up and down the hill, but it was also decently well signed for the average hiker.

  • Location: 8mins from Port Carling, 2.5hrs from Toronto
  • Length: 2.9km
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time: 1hour (including time at the lookout)
  • Time To Go: Weekdays, Sunset, avoid Thanksgiving Weekend (this is when we went and it was VERY busy)
  • Viewpoints: Awesome 180 degrees of Lake Muskoka
  • Dogs Allowed: Yes, on a leash!
  • Weird sightings: People wheeling strollers to the top of the hike (it didn’t go well)
We exited the hike a different way – this lead to a main road
  • What we brought: camera, sweaters, water bottles
  • What we left: footprints/crunched leaves, nothing!
