Visited the logging museum while camping in Algonquin park. Fantastic self guided walk through the forest to view a large number of artifacts related to logging in the park over the years. Very educational and pleasant to do.
Start with the shirt video and then...More
Visited here with my wife and teenage kids. The museum was excellent; informative and fun. The short film beforehand set the scene well and gave a real insight into the life of loggers past and present and the challenge of balancing the industry with conservation....More
Great trail - great history - well worth the visit.

We visited with two younger children (5 and 9) and they enjoyed it a lot. The buildings are replicas (we were told), but the machinery is authentic.
It takes about an hour, with the 12 minute video at the beginning, which I recommend watching.

The hike is easy and suitable for all ages. It is good to learn the logging history and how difficult it was for people to work here long time ago. However, there aren't much you can put your hands on or to do.

When we were there i did not see any dog owners but i do not see any dramas taking your dog, especially if it is on a lead. It is a quaint walk around the trail and your dog will love it just as much as you will. If in doubt give them a call or speak to a ranger at the entrance to the park which is incidently a stones throw away.
