Haliburton is a perfect town to live in at any time of the year, but there's nothing like experiencing the fresh, crisp air during the spring season while exploring the many hiking trails in this beautiful region.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, we've come up with a list of five of the best hiking trails for you to try out in the Haliburton area.
1. Skyline Park
Starting off with a shorter but somewhat steep path, Skyline Park is a great option for newcomers to the area because of the view of the town that it affords hikers.
Located just minutes south of the town of Haliburton, Skyline Park is a great option for hikers looking for a short but rewarding path that looks out over the town at the end.
As spring comes into full effect and colors return to the area, Skyline Park is full of new growth and opportunities for walkers, runners and hikers alike.
2. Glebe Park
Situated on the north end of the city, Glebe Park is the perfect spring park because of the many things to do between winter and summer for local adventurers — from cross country skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing in early spring to mountain biking, hiking, running and walking in late spring, there's plenty to do here.
And between the many sculptures located along the way and the gorgeous scenery of the area, Glebe Park has a lot for the eyes while enjoying the fresh spring air.
3. Haliburton County Rail Trail
Less than ten minutes away from the town of Haliburton is this gorgeous trail that's multi purpose for both ATVs and hikers.
This paved road runs 35 kilometers and runs from Haliburton all the way to the community of Kinmount, providing hikers with beautiful scenery, complete with lazy rivers just breaking off the ice of winter, waterfalls, gorgeous historical bridges, and even the remains of an old chemical plant.
For those who want to continue, the trail runs another 55 kilometers as the Victoria rail trail.
4. Barnum Creek Nature Reserve
For those looking for a hiking trail that varies between both open areas and serene forests, look no further than the Barnum Creek Nature Reserve.
Established recently, this conservation area features plenty of semi-challenging trails with ups and downs, but you won't notice as you'll be captivated by the breathtaking scenery of the area.
5. Circuit of Five Viewpoints Trialhead
A half an hour drive northwest of the town of Haliburton, the Circuit of Five Viewpoints Trailhead is perfect for those looking for more of a challenging hike, as there are no paved trails in sight.
For those looking for a more difficult experience, however, Circuit of Five rewards those willing to put in the work with incredible views looking over the area as well as the many different types of trees and wildlife you'll see along the way.
