Walking / Hiking Trails

There is a marked trail up and down the Tower Hill in Dorset. The total dis-tance of this trail is about 1.5 km and should take well less than an hour to complete the loop. Most visitors find it easier to walk up the steep trail and down the less steep trail, but you are welcome to use either. The trail begins and ends at the Dorset Heritage Museum. Parking is available here except during the busiest times in the fall. This trail is one of a series of systems included in the Haliburton Highlands Trails and Tours Network.

If you would like to enjoy an historic walking tour of Dorset brochures are available at local businesses and the Dorset Heritage Museum. This self-guided tour provides historical information on many sites in our community

The Paint Lake Covered Bridge Trail, off Muskoka Road 117 just west of Dorset offers 2.5 km of level walking trails.

Little known are the trails behind Nordic Inn. These trails are located on Crown Land and offer walkers/hikers a natural path through the wilderness. Out of courtesy the owners ask that you let them know if you are leaving a vehicle on their property.
