Ministry of Natural Resources, September 20, 2013 – Ontario Government Encourages Families to Enjoy Great Outdoors: Ontario’s provincial parks offer great opportunities for families and friends to see beautiful fall colours. There’s a nip in the air and an added bonus of no bugs, so get out and enjoy!
The Ontario Parks Fall Colour Report shows you when colours are at their peak in provincial parks across Ontario.
For the best viewing spots check out:
- The Ravine Trail in Bronte Creek to see into the valley below
