Ontario Fall Colour Report

It is finally beginning to feel like fall here in Southern Ontario! The crisp morning air is bringing back memories of camping under a canopy of red and orange, of long walks through rustling leaves and cozying up by the fire with a warm drink.

I love fall, despite the lingering dread of the looming winter…but enough about that!

I’ve got the Ontario Park Fall Colour Report bookmarked and am checking it daily.

Fall is late this year, with Algonquin only at 30% colour-change.

It is almost prime time for viewing Sugar Maple colour there – the deep reds provide amazing vistas and gorgeous trail walks. A bit later the yellow-orange colours of the poplars and birch trees will arrive. By late October this year, the Tamaracks should be at their peak yellow colour before dropping their needles.

Killbear Provincial Park is also at 30% colour-change and I imagine the reds and oranges mixed with the greens along Georgian Bay are spectacular. Killbear Provincial Park is open for day-use and camping until Monday October 26 this year.
The rest of the Parks have yet to report any significant change.
Over the next couple weeks I’ll be keeping my eye on the report for somewhere a bit closer to home this year. Perhaps we’ll check out the trails at Forks of the Credit Provincial Park.
