ALGONQUIN PARK FALL COLOURS
HIKING AND CANOEING
Fall is a spectacular time to visit Algonquin Park. Thousands of visitors from around the world are attracted by the outstanding fall colour viewing opportunities.
Join our trip to Algonquin park and take some spectacular pictures of Sugar and Red Maples.
The Muskoka area is famous for its natural beauty - lush forests, granite rocks, and clear lakes.
We will canoe for two hours on Canoe Lake (don't worry if you don't have any experience, lesson and life west is provided) and hike two different trails.
Hiking in Algonquin Park:
There are so many trails to explore and wildlife to see! We can spend all day exploring the wilderness. It’s the perfect time of year to get lots of great moose pictures.
Which are our favourite hikes?
1) Peck Lake Trail
Peck Lake Trail is a 2.3 km loop trail goes completely around the shoreline of Peck Lake.
2) Algonquin Park Visitor Centre
Opened in 1993 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Algonquin Provincial Park and the entire Ontario provincial park system, the Algonquin Park Visitor Centre has world class exhibits on the Park's natural and human history, a relaxing restaurant and an excellent bookstore. A theatre presentation sums up the Park story and then takes you out to the viewing deck from where you can admire a breathtaking panorama of wild Algonquin landscape.
3) Beaver Pond Trail
Beaver Pond Trail is a 2.0 km loop trail that yields excellent views of two beaver ponds while the guide provides an introduction to Algonquin's fascinating beaver pond ecology.
4) Lake of Two Rivers Trail
Two Rivers Trail is a 2.3 km loop trail includes an easy ascent to a pine-clad cliff, and introduces the importance of change in the natural forest of Algonquin.
5) Booth's Rock Trail
Booth's Rock Trail is a 5.1 km loop trail that visits two lakes and a spectacular lookout, returning via an abandoned railway. The guide discusses man's impact on the Park.
Lookout Trail is a 2.1 km loop trail that is fairly steep and rugged, but rewards the hiker with a magnificent view of several hundred square kilometres of Algonquin. This guide discusses the geology of the Park.
