  1. Each participant must bring a mask and hand sanitizer for every outing for their personal use, as need arises, such as in instances when 2m distancing is difficult to maintain.

Are you visiting from the worldwide web, and unfamiliar with the Haliburton Highlands? We are surrounded by forest, rocks, lakes and rivers – rugged terrain on the granite of the Canadian Shield. We’re at the tippy-toe of Algonquin Park, three hours North of Toronto, and a few hours West of Ottawa, all in Ontario, Canada. The County of Haliburton is sparsely settled – which makes it ideal for Trekking. Learn all about us on the following pages, and thanks for visiting!

If you’re already a Member, you’ll find everything you need by going to For Members. Please have a look at the Volunteer page. Haliburton Highlands Trekkers is a 100% volunteer-run club. Your energy will ensure our ongoing success.
