Cooper's Falls Trail near Gravenhurst

Hiking Muskoka

When we're able, we use our talents as hikers in Toronto to explore other parts of Ontario. This entry is one of the series from our October visit to Muskoka. 

Cooper's Falls Trail is a 7.3 hike each way and is located near Gravenhurst with beautiful lakes and the Canadian Sheild landscape.

The Cooper's Falls Trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail that spans 27,000 km across Canada.

There are no waterfalls on this trail, instead expect typical Canadian shield terrain and marshy ponds.

Expect to climb over large rocks that are typical in this part of Ontario.

The trail is mostly well marked with blue signs. We had some trouble finding the trail past Larroger Road.

Parts of the trail are very muddy so wear appropriate footwear.

The leaves were still colourful during our hike, which made the scenery spectacular.

We turned around halfway but met several hikers who trekked both ways.
