Head to the Mill of Kintail, an 1832 sandstone grist mill, to learn about the natural and cultural history of the area, from the inventor of basketball’s museum - James Naismith - to the Indian River’s plant and animal life. Visit the R. Tait McKenzie Museum to see famous Canadian artworks from the 1930s and 1832 architecture. Draw inspiration from the natural scenery just like A.Y. Jackson once did in this spot. Get your blood flowing with a jog along the Fitness Path, or overcome fatigue with some hiking through the extensive trails. Trails are open year round, in all weather, seven days a week from dawn to dusk. The R. Tait Mackenzie and James Naismith Museum is open until Thanksgiving weekend.
