This venue is on the most beautiful conservation land. Spring, summer, winter or fall it doesn't matter what time if year it is there is always something to there. Maple syrup time with pancakes, playing in the snowy forest, and so much more. The activities they have for all ages is incredible. It is a hot spot for class trips.... More

It was a busy Maple Syrup Festival Sunday judging by the amount of vehicles that were queueing to get into the already packed parking lot. Important information about Maple Syrup are posted on trees like the fact that 85% of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada and that 40 liters of sap is required to make just 1 liter... More

Maple Syrup Festival is a great way to get out and enjoy the day. Lots of trees, trails and great staff with smiles that know their stuff. The food was great too. Pancakes, sausages, pulled pork sandwiches, and much more. The gift shop has lots of maple products and stuff for all ages. All in all, great place to visit!

Far enough from the City to make a trip out of it but close enough to make it convenient. Went with some friends and their kids for Maple Syrup festival. I liked what they had setup (Pioneer station, modern station) but I felt like they could have done a few more things (e.g. classic toffee station -pour syrup on crushed... More

We live nearby so we often go hiking here. It is now March break so fun to see maple syrup being made the old fashioned way. Over the years, some of the trials have been closed, including the marsh walk, due to washed out bridges and safety issues. I hope that these trails will reopen at some point.Otherwise, a good...

There are 3 main trails to take if you are hiking: Forest, Marsh, and the Power Trip. Forest and Marsh are typical dirt trails, but nothing too difficult. Power Trip is flat and is more of an educational loop rather than a hiking trail. Parts of the trails can get icy and slippery in winter, so do don proper foot... More

We've been to Kortright a few times. Great place for hiking. They have a maple syrup festival every fall which is fun but busy. Dog friendly with scenic trails, try going in the fall to soak in the fall foliage and colours.
