Opening Spring 2021

Huble Homestead Historic Site is currently closed. We look forward to opening our doors to visitors again on Saturday, May 22. The park is still available for your favourite non-motorized activities, such as hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and photography. Information about the Giscome Portage trail can be found here.

 

If choosing to explore the grounds of the historic site, we ask that visitors please stay home if they are feeling ill and that they maintain a distance of at least two metres between themselves and anybody they may encounter.
