Port Cunnington Lodge & Resort (http://www.portcunnington.com), a popular lakefront Ontario resort on scenic Lake of Bays in Muskoka, announces that they are partnering with Echo Valley Nature & Bike Trails, a new Lake of Bays park and bike trail system and year-round tourist attraction located near the town of Dwight. Beginning in the spring of 2015, Port Cunnington Lodge will be offering new special resort accommodations packages that will include hiking and biking activities at Echo Valley Nature & Bike Trails.
Muskoka's latest tourist attraction, Echo Valley Nature & Bike Trails celebrated its grand opening on October 6, 2014. The new park and trail system is open to visitors year-round and offers 3.5 kilometres of marked trails for snowshoeing, hiking and cycling. The Echo Valley trail system comprises 15 trails that are rated from easy to difficult, includes a main trail line which takes hikers approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete, and 14 smaller trails. The trail park encompasses approximately 24 hectares (60 acres) of scenic Muskoka wilderness, with trails ideally suited for leisurely nature walks, brisk mountain bike rides, invigorating hikes and bracing winter snowshoeing jaunts. The Echo Valley Nature & Bike Trails Park has three different onsite kiosks and a viewing guide that provides information to enrich the learning experience of a park visit. There is also a viewing platform that overlooks the protected land nearby for visitors to observe area wildlife. A trail map of the park is available online.
