I will choose Fossil Fuel Free outdoor activities this summer – Good for people – Good for the planet. Fact: Canadians of all ages need to move more and sit less to help achieve optimal health. Physical activity and your health – Canada.ca
Recent numbers tell us we are not out of the woods yet as far as Covid is concerned and that’s one more reason to get outside. Warmer weather, longer days and returning bird song are drawing us outside and into the woods, literally. As the snow melts and the ground dries up, watch for the opening of your favourite walking, hiking, biking trails. Here are links to some local trails.
- Hiking Trails in Muskoka – Best Hiking Trails in Ontario (discovermuskoka.ca)
- Cycling in Muskoka – Top Road Bike Routes in Muskoka (discovermuskoka.ca)
Talk to your local councillor about providing more routes and about connecting existing safe hiking and biking trails in your community.
If we are serious about attracting tourists to Muskoka in the future, providing more active recreation opportunities is essential.
Fossil Fuel Free recreation activities are good for your health, good for our planet’s health, and good for the future economic health of Muskoka.

Reminder: If you are a gardener it’s time to think about planting seeds indoors so plants are ready to go out when danger of frost is over.
