Welcome to Explore our Lakes 

This year, during Dysart’s (and Canada’s) 150th Birthday, we want to gather and share as much water information as we can about this municipality to create online and paper based maps and guides to promote a better hiking, swimming, boating, skidooing, fishing, paddling, etc., etc.,  experience for both residents and visitors of our Municipality.
If you have a favourite route or are willing to share points of interest that you enjoy, we’d love to share your experience and very happy to give credit to anyone who contributes stories, routes and photos that we can use to promote this great experience.

Submit stories, routes and photos to info@dysartetal.ca or post on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/haliburtonpaddles/

Have Fun Be Active – Do it in Dysart et al – ‪#‎Comewander‬ with a paddle.


In September 2016, we explored the northeastern part of Dysart et al by canoe and stand up paddle board and kayak from Benoir Lake to the York River with a hike to High Falls.  benoir-lake-and-high-falls-paddle-and-hike
