Rock Climbing

Rock climbing - by Sam AllardThere are not many places in Ontario that you can climb on natural rock walls, but at Haliburton Forest we have a one of a kind rock face that is appropriate for all participants. In just one place we will teach you how to climb, belay, and work together. We will design a positive space and encourage everyone to challenge themselves on beginner or more difficult routes. This natural rock wall is located at our Stocking Lake facility which also provides groups with an off-the-grid experience. To create a full day experience at this location you can pair rock climbing with the High-Ropes course or canoeing. Participants learn so much about themselves, therefore making this experience one that is hard to pass up. 


The high-ropes course that Haliburton Forest has created is state of the art. Teamwork and balance on high ropes courseAfter a short hike to the course, challenge yourself by balancing on cables, tires, and ropes within the trees. Your guide will provide all the instruction you need to participate and be safe in this challenging activity. Your experience will bring about smiles, laughter, confidence building, and learning to support one another. The high-ropes course is located at our Stocking Lake facility.  You could rock climb in the morning and challenge the high-ropes in the afternoon. The high-ropes challenge course is designed to press the limits and create great learning and growing opportunities for each individual. Consider extending your experiences at height by participating in our leisurely walk, The Canopy Tour. Returning home, your group will not stop talking about this challenge course. Canopy tour - by Sam Allard

Your group can add this half day adventure full of natural history and beautiful scenery to many other experiences offered throughout the forest. Stay in our beautiful accommodations before or after your tour. Begin your morning with a rental canoe on McDonald Lake, or hike on some of our 300kms of trails, or have lunch at The Cookhouse – then attend The Canopy Tour. Your adventures are limitless - you dream them, and we make them possible.

Tree Climbing is an incredible experience for all people wishing to see the forest from a different view. Groups have the opportunity to join a guide and experience climbing trees with safety equipment and professional instruction. Participants will challenge themselves in ways you have never seen before in a safe and controlled environment. It is an amazing feeling and breath-taking sight once you reach the very top of a great White Pine tree. Something impossible to describe, but easy to come by with this opportunity provided for you. You may be interested in extending your stay to include The Canopy Tour or even Rappelling; simply ask us the possibilities and we will design them for you. 

Rappelling at Hollow Valley - by Sam AllardRappelling

Come participate in a once in a life-time, unforgettable adventure. Groups will hike up to one of the highest points in Central Ontario and witness the spectacular view of Hollow Valley. Your professional guide will instruct participants how to use safety equipment to rappel 100ft off the edge. Imagine climbing up a rock face one day and then rappelling down a rock face the next. Two completely different experiences, in two completely different places, with a promise of amazing views, pictures, and experiences. Unbelievable!
