The Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve is a publicly accessible private year-round wilderness haven with twenty private lakes and more than 10,000 unspoiled acres of mixed forest near Huntsville, Ontario, Canada. The private forest reserve contains more than 70 km of hiking, biking, skiing and snowshoeing trails made available to the public at no charge.
Limberlost practices a form of land management referred to as Conscientious Forest Management which focuses on ensuring the sustainability of their management objectives and actions for generations to come. We encourage the use of the forest visitors and eco-tourists at no charge; support environmental research programs and institutes; and offer both modern and traditional forest land use options to the local community.
Limberlost’s primary objective is to offer continued free access to the 10,000 acre Muskoka property for the purpose of encouraging safe wilderness experiences. Free use of the property is made possible by revenue from rental accommodations and campsites
