Discover the unexpected.  Unearth wild secrets.  Get off the beaten path.  Taboo Muskoka nature trails and guided outdoor activities are yours to explore.

Rooted in a proud, century long heritage of Muskoka wilderness hotels and resorts, Taboo is here to share the wonders found throughout nature with you.  The woodlands of our 1,000 acre Ontario resort are filled with forests of old pine and ancient oak, spectacular Canadian Shield rock ridges and beaver ponds, birds and wildlife.

Nature trail system
Whether you tackle Taboo Muskoka’s terrain in running shoes, hiking boots, or on a mountain bike or pair of snowshoes, there is always something cool to see on Taboo’s over 8 km of diverse hiking trails and 5 km of mountain bike trails.  Handy, pocket sized Taboo trail maps will help you find your way. Handheld GPS Orienteering sessions are also regularly part of the resort activity mix.

Guided nature walks & hikes
Make the most of the great outdoors on one of Taboo's guided hikes led by Resident Naturalist Robin Tapley, or another of our recreation specialists. Choose a short Morning Nature Walk to get your energy up and orient yourself to the resort.

Capture the beauty of nature's details with a Photography Workshop hike.  Head out after dark for Taboo's famous Night Hike & Owl Prowl.  During the harvest season you can even hike and harvest for wild edibles and tea ingredients.  Check the Taboo Activity Guide or Event Calendar for all current guided hike choices.

Whatever path or guided adventures you choose, we'll see you down the trail at Taboo.
