Places to See and Things to Do from Moonlight & Pines Bed & Breakfast

Moonlight & Pines is a four-season Bed & Breakfast located on the edge of the Ganaraska Forest, in the Northumberland Region of Southern Ontario, Canada.

Outdoor Recreation

The Ganaraska Forest: nearly 11,000 acres of hardwood and evergreen forest with hundreds of kilometres of trails. The Forest is divided into three prime areas, with a centrally located passive use area, which does not allow motorized vehicles, plus East & West Forests for motorized activities. Enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and more offering hours of outdoor exploration to the enthusiasts. In winter, snowmobile trails crisscross the hilly terrain.

The Ganaraska Trail passes right by our door. We offer a restful interlude for those who are trekking different sections over time. Our B&B offers the ideal place to stay while you traverse the first three sections of trail.
