Boler Mountain

All Londoners know that Boler Mountain is the place to be when the snow falls, but did you know that becomes even cooler once the snow melts? Boler Mountain has year-round fun with their Mountain Biking & Fitness Trails and Treetop Adventure Park.

MOUNTAIN BIKE AND FITNESS TRAILS

Boler Mountain has 120 acres of property that is open through the spring and summer for mountain biking and fitness walking. The bike trails have a beginner and an advanced loop and these loops have been used for many local, provincial, and national races! Your family can either purchase day passes or season passes for biking or walking trails, rent bikes and/or helmets, and take lessons. They even offer a weekly summer camp for eight weeks of the summer.

Trails are currently open Monday and Tuesday from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00am to dusk. For July and August their hours will be 9:00am to dusk daily.

TREETOP ADVENTURE PARK

Behind Boler Mountain’s ski trails are Carolinian forests which are home to Boler’s latest adventure in the treetops! For those who seek a little thrill and love the outdoors, the Treetop Adventure Park has a lot to offer! Zipline through the forest, cross the rope courses and swinging bridges, do the Tarzan swing and play on the pirate net! This place has something for everyone with Junior, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and a 1100ft Big Zip!

This is for kids roughly 8 years and older, up to adults. There are height and weight restrictions for both children and adults.

Open from now until November, you must make a reservation in advance for all individual and group visits. They are open Monday through Thursday for group bookings, Friday noon to dusk, Saturday, Sunday, and holidays from 9:00am to dusk. They also have birthday parties on their Junior Course!
