The best part about living in Canada, other than maple syrup, has to be experiencing the beauty of each and every season. Although all seasons bring with them a certain allure - there’s just something about autumn. The crisp air, the crunch of leaves under your feet - it just doesn’t get any better than that! In the spirit of celebrating the beginning of fall, here’s our list of the top 5 places to see the autumn colours in Ontario!
Rattlesnake Point is one of the most breathtaking places in Ontario. Try the Vista Adventure trail for a quick and easy walk - but full of amazing autumn views. Seeing the escarpment light up with fall colours is something everyone visiting Ontario should experience!
Track and Tower Trail,Algonquin
The Track and Tower Trail is a 7km hike in Algonquin. While 7km is a bit of a trek, the views are most definitely worth it. The scenery of looking down on Cache Lake, with the trees right by the water, is a sight needed to be seen in the wakes of Autumn.
If you're looking for something that's not so physically enduring - we definitely recommend going to the Big Bend Lookout! Located at Arrowhead Provincial Park, the Big Bend Lookout is a short walk from the parking lot and provides spectacular views of the surrounding area - full of colourful trees in the fall.
Little Dunks Lookout,Bruce Peninsula
Clocking in at only a 20 minute hike - the Little Dunks Lookout provides one of the best scenic views you'll ever see. The Lookout is surrounded by cedar forests and scenic coves and is a must see in the fall!
A moderate trail, only 2km, the Balsam Lake Lookout Trail is probably the best place to go if you want to see the autumn colours in their glory. The trail passes through a cedar swamp, deciduous forest and an open meadow - giving you all types of amazing views for your journey!
Planting trees is one of the easiest and affordable ways to positively affect the environment. But why is it so great to plant trees in the fall?
