Sugar Bush Trek Update
Due to the rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 we are canceling our Sugar Bush Trek until further notice. Our Maple Sweets Shop will remain open during this time, however, due to food safety our Sugar Shack will be closed to the public while in production. We hope you stay safe and healthy over the coming weeks.
Relive the legend of Maple Syrup’s discovery. Test your hand at pioneer wood-cutting. Savour the sweet difference of 100% Pure Maple Syrup, warmed up, oozed over snow, and rolled on a stick -- called Taffy-on-Snow, what generation after generation calls the most beloved, must-have, sugar season tradition.
Hop on our Sugar Shuttle tractor-pulled wagon and let our family take your family into the heart of our working sugarbush. In the forest, follow in our sugar-maker’s footsteps as your guide leads you through the reimagined Native and Pioneer Camps of Maple Syrup’s rich history, solves your maple mysteries, and sets you on your own exploration -- Taffy in hand -- to experience the best adventures of the sugar bush.
Discover more details about the guided portion and exploration portion of your Trek below.
Treks depart from the farm each half hour, but we won’t be surprised if you arrive extra early, itchy to hit the trails. We’ve seen it before -- which is why we’ve opened our Petting Farm doors, and we’re pretty sure the frisky goats are competing for your smiles. Or, if you’re hungry, pop into our Sweet Shop and fill up before your walk with home-baked goodies like our famous butter tarts, muffins, or baked beans. There’s also samplings and talks happening in the Sugar Shack, where we make 100% Pure Maple Syrup today. If the weather’s right, you may see our evaporator in action. Why not plan to come early? On our farm, there’s lots to enjoy.
When your Trek ends is up to you. We recommend you dress warm and give yourself a minimum of 1½ hours to enjoy your tour and explore the trails. When you’re ready to return to the farm, hop back on the Sugar Shuttle.
Kiddie sleds to save mom and dad’s weary arms and portable washrooms are available for you on the Sugar Bush Trek.
Many natural critters call our sugar bush home. For their comfort, pets and smoking are not permitted in the sugar bush. However, do bring your camera. There’s lots of family photobook moments and chance wildlife encounters to be had on your Sugar Bush Trek! After your Trek, fill your take-home cravings in our Sweet Shop with the $5 bonus voucher included with your Adult Trek Pass (Voucher valid on any purchase in the Sweet Shop over $15).
