Discovering Muskoka's Rich Heritage by PWC

In the heart of Explorers' Edge, Muskokaís variety of waterways offer spectacular scenery and a unique heritage, making it a great place to explore by personal watercraft. The crown jewel of Ontarioís cottage country,the regionís rock formations and lakes made the area poorly suited to agriculture, but the abundance of fish to catch and game to trap made it an ideal area for nomadic first nationís people to frequent prior to European settlement. In the late 1800s the area became a popular destination for city dwellers to escape the hustle and bustle of urban living, laying the foundation for what became a thriving tourism industry prior to that term even existing.

A few friends and I recently decided to follow this same path by heading north to Gravenhurst for a few days. While our experience was indeed different than it would have been back when the rich and famous would arrive at luxury resorts by train and then steamship, remnants of this history can still be seen and experienced. Rather than a sweaty, grueling day of travel, we were able to escape Toronto in a Jeep Wrangler Altitude Edition and be in Gravenhurst in under two hours, even with a stop at Webers on Highway 11 for a few charbroiled cheeseburgers.
