Fall Foliage in Algonquin Park

Red, Orange, Yellow… the magnificent colours of Autumn.

Anyone and everyone in their lifetime must visit Algonquin Park during Fall foliage.  Why?  Fall foliage at peak is truly wonderful.  You don’t have to be an avid hiker to enjoy it either.  You can drive down a number of different roads of the main highway.  Even if you just drive along the main road, Highway 60, you will see all the colours and possibly a moose too.  If you are an avid hiker there are plenty of trails to hike through the forest.  If hiking is not your thing, you can always take or rent a bicycle down the Old Railway Bike Path.

Our adventure included hiking the Mizzy Trail (it took us four hours) and the Track & Tower (it took us two hours). Mizzy Lake trail was challenging but well worth it. We walked through a number of lakes and ponds and it was probably the best chance that we had at seeing wildlife that day.  Along with a couple scenic drives through Arowhon Road and Canisbay Lake Road.

If you have a chance you also need to visit Coopers Corn Maze.  Each year they have a theme for the maze.  This year it was Ghostbusters, and it was our first time visiting.  It was a lot of fun.  We went through both Phase 1 and 2 of the maze.  There were some questions to answer, and based on the answer (multiple choice) you picked you would either circle around or make it to the next question.  We had a ton of fun walking around in the maze, and if I knew anything about Ghostbusters I’m confident that we would have finished in record time.

  1. Very nice fall foliage pics from Algonquin. Just shared them with the kids. Reminds me of fall camping trips from many years ago. Cheers!
