Skyline Park

You can take in an incredible view of Haliburton and surrounding areas any time of the year from the Skyline Lookout Park just east of the Village of Haliburton at 196 Skyline Road off of Hwy 118.

Best view of Haliburton from several hundred feet above the town.

If the Muskokas are the gem of cottage country in Ontario, the Haliburton Highlands is most certainly Ontario cottage country’s diamond in the rough. Although we share much of the same landscape and natural scenery, Haliburton is less developed and crowded, and its people are just a little more laid-back. With fewer people and less industry, the pace of life here is more relaxed than in the Muskoka Lake region. In Haliburton, you can take your time, and enjoy our untouched natural wilderness in peace and tranquillity.
