Don't miss this museum!
Sep. 2019
It is definitely worth visiting this open air museum. The circular path has only slight gradients and is therefore easy to walk. The exhibits are impressive and the explanations highly interesting.

Love this place
Sep. 2019 • Friends
I have been to the logging museum so often in previous years yet never taken the time to write about my experience.
It is a very lovely trail, really gives one a glimpse into what life might have been back in those days.
Unimaginable hardship yet perseverance by those in the bush and those left behind.

Great place for children as well.

Easy walking trail, mainly even surface.

AN IMPRESSIVE TRAIL WITH SEVERAL SURPRISES
Jun. 2019 • Couples
The Algonquin Logging Museum takes you on a circular forest walk through a series of exhibits explaining the industry in an informative and interesting trail. There are several 'surprises' on route, with buildings and transport playing an important role, including a locomotive appearing, dramatically, in a clearing. As a museum highlighting a single theme, this is an exemplary example. My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with the entire setting,
In the same area are the Visitor Centre and 'The Lookout Trail' - the latter offering a hilly walk with enormous boulders and a superb clifftop view.

Good walk

This walk isn't difficult, but is an excellent journey through the history of logging in Algonquin Park. There are excellent explanations and examples of equipment and buildings.

Terrific Experience
Aug. 2017
I was fortunate in that I was spending the day with a former logger, but this is truly a great experience to see what our ancestors did with what we see now as primitive technology and how they lived. Fascinating!

Brilliant for all ages
May 2018 • Family
Fantastic little trail, ideal for a leg stretch. Plenty of info boards about logging and the hardships of working in the wilderness. There is a boat, train, log cabins and numerous exhibits to keep all content. Trail is about 1.3km long give or take, cheeky in the snow and ice, the lake is picturesque especially observing the wildlife. Enjoy, we did.

We enjoyed the Logging Museum and Trail and found it an easy walk with interesting and informative exhibits. Recommended for young and old to learn about all aspects of life in times gone by in the logging industry, well worth a visit.
