Torrance Barrens Trail

Main Use: hiking
Other Use: skiing, star gazing
Length: 2.5 km

The Torrance Barrens trails are interesting not because they are long and challenging hiking trails, but because of the unique geology and ecology you will find here. The landscape is very old exposed rock and and here you will find some spectacular star gazing. During the day you will find over 90 species of birds, 18 different mammals and Canada’s only lizard, the five-lined skink. The intermittent wetlands also boast lush orchids and unusual flora. Get to the trail head from Hwy 169 to Southwood Road route 13 and after about 7 km turn east over the tracks.

If there is a particular Muskoka Hiking Trail we missed or you think deserves mention, please Contact Us. We'd love to hear from you.
