The Fall colours in Ontario are spectacular to see and photograph when in full colour. Timing (and weather) plays a big part in being able to see them at their peak.
Thankfully, due to the tree canopy that the City of Toronto insisted on residents in the past, you don’t have to drive at all in order to see the trees ‘show off’ their colours before going to ‘sleep’ through winter.
There are 2 areas worth a visit in Toronto – the Don Valley Trail and High Park
Asides from the above, there’s always the ‘more established’ neighbourhoods of Toronto that still have tree-lined streets e.g., The Beaches, Rosedale, Forest Hill.
If you have a car, or occasionally rent one, you’ll find even more beautiful destinations just north of Toronto, such as Georgian Bay, Muskoka and Kawartha. There are a few websites that suggest routes to take for the best views of the colours.
You could also follow @OntarioParks (Twitter) for the latest, using #FallColours. You’ll see some beautiful pictures via this account – worth a follow
The FALL REPORT provides an up-to-date forecast of the Colours – this way you’ll not miss out on the best time to take the drive and ‘take in’ the beauty of the Ontario countryside 🙂
