FALL - Another Beautiful Season In Algonquin

Summer got off to a very slow and wet start. But the end of August, has brought the kind of weather we were promised. Labor Day weekend has been absolutely glorious ! The weather forecast for the near future promises more of the same. Since we have had lots of rain and not the drought of the past couple of years, it bodes well for spectacular reds and oranges in this years' fall colors. Maybe even an Indian Summer ! We are not expecting too much are we?
I certainly don't think so, if you are still hankering for some great sunshine, canoeing, photography, hikes in Algonquin Park, why not give us a call and reward yourself with a short surprise getaway. We still have availability and if september is too soon, then how about Thanksgiving? Check out our online availability.
The Algonquin Park staff believe that the Fall Peak colors are from late September through early October.
Recommended Trails for the best views of fall color are;
- Hardwood Lookout
- Track and Tower
- Centennial Ridges
- Booths Rock
For those that are not up to long or strenuous hikes, colors can also be enjoyed just driving between the West and East Gates of Algonquin Park.
