Off the Beaten Path

We did some 'Trailbnb' last week, which is basically using Airbnb to find cool places to stay close to trails. Hotel chains don't always locate in the rural areas we like to run, so we have good luck with this approach.

Our hosts were located just outside of Whitney, Ontario, and we enjoyed some relaxing down time as well as exploring trails in Algonquin Provincial Park, near where we were staying, and even Silent Lake Provincial Park on the way home. Here are some trail highlights of our little vacation. We were never off the grid, but we definitely found ourselves off the beaten path at times.

  • We highly recommend Algonquin Hide-Away if you are looking for a cozy headquarter for your Algonquin and area trail vacation. The completely separate apartment in the lovely log home was perfect for us, and there was even a beautiful trail down to a lake which Siku had fun joining us on.
