Break away from the every day treadmill and Stairmaster workouts with an experience that is both out of the ordinary and fun. Escape into over 1,000 acres of Taboo Parkland that lies just outside our front door.
With a proud heritage rooted in Muskoka's original wilderness hotels, Taboo acknowledges that the heart of the Muskoka experience lies in the enduring serenity and vitality of nature found amidst its vast 1,000 acre private parkland. The parkland is an easily accessible area with several kilometres of nature trails ideal for hiking, biking, bird watching and peaceful immersion in the great outdoors.
The Parklands contain beaver ponds, forests of old pine and ancient oaks and spectacular open rock ridges. Wildlife is abundant as this is where the northern and southern ranges of many Ontario species overlap. Deer, moose, fox, owls, chipmunks, turtles and songbirds also call Taboo home. Wildflowers thrive in this area of the Canadian Shield rockland as well.
- 8 kms of incredible trails for hiking
- Complimentary use of mountain bikes with 5 kms of various trails to ride
