It’s officially fall. The days are getting shorter, the temperature is dropping and the leaves are changing. The technicolor of fall will be in full swing before we know it, and we wanted to share with you our top places to take in the the beauty of the fall colours:

Near Toronto

The Don Valley

The Don Valley ravine system hits peak colour just after Thanksgiving.  Most people flock to Crothers Woods and the BrickWorks, but other spots to consider are Taylor Creek, Sunnybrook Park, Edwards Gardens and the East Don Parkland.

Scarborough Bluffs 

Always beautiful, the Scarborough Bluffs become even more extraordinary in the fall.

High Park

The best part about taking in the fall colours in High Park is that there is so much else to do while you are there! A great place for the whole family – between the zoo, the adventure playground and the countless paths to ride bicycles you can make a day out of it!

Near Hamilton

Royal Botanical Gardens

Where do we even begin? … With over 27 kilometres of walking trails and the countless species of trees the choices for viewing the colours is endless.  So much so that the Royal Botanical Gardens posts a fall colour report on its website!

Dundas Peak

You won’t be alone if you visit Dundas Peak on a sunny fall day – it’s a favourite for people trying to take in the colours from the top of the peak.

Chedoke Rail Trail 

Take in the magnificent views while strolling along the edge of the escarpment and pass over the Chedoke waterfall. Go deeper into the woods and you find fall coulous as far as the eye can see!
