The Pakenham Maple Run Tour is a shout out to Spring and a wonderful way to celebrate one of Mother Nature’s most extraordinary gifts of the season.
In a matter of weeks, the sap that flows from the thousands of tapped maple trees that dot the Lanark County countryside is collected, masterfully boiled and beautifully transformed into the liquid gold that gives Lanark County its identity as the ‘Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario’.
Build a Cookbook!
It is so easy to add maple into your life. As you wander the Tour route, pick up a delicious maple inspired recipe (or two) from each of the 10 Tour stops. At the end of the day, head for home with a wonderful little cookbook of delicious menu ideas to share with family and friends!
