Named one of the Top 10 maple experiences in Canada by Canadian Geographic, Wheelers Maple is a destination that’s about far more than maple syrup. Visitors will find Wheelers Maple is a one-stop destination for so many experiences, and all of them memorable.
As a National Historic Site, there is a historic element that is found in every experience here, from exploring the Guinness World Record collection of maple artifacts, to watching the culturally important production of maple syrup in the sugar camp. Visitors are invited to wander through the 600-acre maple forest on snow shoes in the winter or by foot in the summer to see first-hand the trees that have been providing sweet sustenance to visitors for generations.
Not to be forgotten is the delicious maple syrup that can be savoured with a full pancake breakfast (pancakes are made from a family recipe) that’s served all day long. You’ll likely encounter one or more members of the Wheeler family during your visit – take the time to say “Hello” and hear the stories they have to share about being part of this quintessentially Canadian experience in Lanark County.
Wheelers Maple is also part of the Maple Trail in Lanark County, where maple can be experienced year-round from a list of maple-inspired experiences for learning, tasting and shopping maple.
