If you are interested in the Arts the Galleries, Wildlife and Craft Shows will amaze you. The numerous Antique stores and Flea Markets in the area will keep you busy looking for those old treasures.
Lock 31 at Buckhorn is one of the busiest of the 42 locks stations on the Trent Seven System.
Visitors can come to the locks to use the picnic area, watch the boats go through the locks or just relax with a good book on the landscaped grounds. Please be aware that fishing is not allowed at the locks (signs are posted at all locks along the Trent Severn).
Walking Trails in Buckhorn
For those who like to walk, there are many interesting treks from your Buckhorn base. The Adam and Eve walking route is 5.6km and takes you through a hidden community lined with beautiful trees and highlights the giant boulders commonly named "Adam and Eve". Another walk takes
you to the community of Lakehurst and back. A third tour meanders its way around Buckhorn and the historic spots, many shops and restaurants and the scenic beauty of our town.
A detailed description of all of these walks can be picked up at the Buckhorn District Tourist Association booth located beside the liquor store in downtwon Buckhorn.
