Mountain Biking

Mountain bikes neatly storedMountain biking is a fantastic and sustainable method of transportation for your students to experience some of the 80,000 acres of Haliburton Forest. Students have the opportunity to be guided on our trails through different mountain biking trips: one day or multi-day trips. There are over 300 km of trails maintained for the purpose of mountain biking just waiting for your students. Inform our staff of the experience level you wish to challenge your students with, and we will prepare the perfect route for them.

Your students may enjoy a bike ride to our Stocking Lake facility, which offers: high ropes, rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, and off-the-grid sustainable living. Create a unique and physical experience for your students to learn how to appreciate a sustainable lifestyle and build transferable leadership skills. Bikes and helmets, as well as an introduction to mountain biking, will be provided for all students. We invite your students to get outside and move on a mountain biking through our forest. 

For inquiries and pricing information please contact our facilitation staff at experiences@haliburtonforest.com.
