Winter left the Haliburton Highlands very late at the end of April ... and then with a deluge of water. Accordingly, while we did open all main roads at Haliburton Forest to car traffic, we have to advise all visitors to be extremely cautious, with shoulders and even road sections remaining extremely soft. During the April-flood several bridges and culverts at Haliburton Forest were washed away and every visitor should obtain updated information at the front desk before heading out into the Forest. Haliburton Forest staff have been diligently working at putting roads and bridges back in place over the past 2 weeks.
Any trails will be very soft as well and users are advised to use caution.
ATV use at Haliburton Forest is not permitted during the summer.
