Even though it was my idea, I was pretty nervous about doing this tour, and was afraid I'd chicken out at the last minute. However, I plucked up my courage and stepped onto the first bridge. Soon I relaxed and enjoyed being up in the treetops. Alexis and Cameron took my husband and me, the Schlumpenfelds, on this adventure, driving... More

Have been here numerous times with my kids and their friends. From the Wolf enclosure, to the fishing. To Kashe the Moose. Everything about this place is great for the outdoor enthusiast. Love coming here

During the March school break, my wife and I, together with our 13-year-old son, rented snowmobiles at the Reserve. Part of the rental fee included a snowmobile safety helmet. The friendly staff provided us with instructions on how to operate a snowmobile and gave us a detailed trail map, recommending which trails we should try as beginners. Despite the fact... More

Haliburton Wildlife has snow earlier than many surrounding trails, but it's pricey and can be busy. I enjoy it for an early sled ride but won't go more than once a year. The onsite restaurant is pretty good - no complaints. The trail-side warming huts are a nice feature but are often full of smokers/drinkers. The drinking in the park... More

We got to the forest around 9am and got onto the trails and just went for it! The area was well kept and we all had a blast. We did lose the other snowmobile on one trail but the signs were very clear and we were able to find them again within minutes. Can't wait to go back and explore... More

We took our took grand children dog sledding here, as part of March break, and enjoyed every single minute of our "first time experience". Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve never disappoints in delivering a superb experience for not only us but the children. We took the introductory ride which gave us the opportunity to get to know all the... More

My son and I spent a couple of hours watching Fang and his pack of wolves being wolves. Then we experienced a chance to pet Hershey the 700lb moose.

We are a couple with two girls (13 and 11) and we would totally recommend this place for dog sledding. We booked the half day (20 km) trek and it was a great experience for all of us. I had a sled with one daughter and five dogs and my spouse had another sled with the younger child and six... More

We were fortunate to see the wolves out shortly after their feed time. Very interesting! The museum though small is quite informative. Would recommend this, it is worth the drive from sir sam's inn.
