With Labor Day now behind us, it’s time to shed our bright summer shorts and fading tans for chunky boots, fuzzy mittens and wool hats. You know that autumn is officially here in North Muskoka when every time you look outside, your heart skips a beat when you see the colors changing in the trees. If you’re still mourning over the end of your summer, nothing will captivate you more than seeing North Muskoka on fire, the trees embracing the Lake of Bars, Skeleton Lake or Lake Wasoesa in color schemes you can only imagine if you see them first hand.

You know that autumn is officially here in North Muskoka when every time you look outside, your heart skips a beat when you see the colors changing in the trees.

You will loose track of time every time you escape in a canoe, kayak or on a trail and experience the fall change of colors. Or, if you prefer to sit on your deck with a glass of wine or a local craft beer, and take in the sheer beauty of fall by just relaxing in all of its splendor, then do that! I just want to make sure that you enjoy the gifts of this amazing time of year while we have them – before we know it, the trees will be bare and snow will be crunching underfoot.

And just between you and I – relish in your raking, you can even make a quick jump into a huge pile of leaves…and I won’t tell.

Top 5 must-see places for fall colors:

  • Anywhere along HWY 60 in Algonquin Park Lake of Two Rivers, Algonquin Park
  • Dorset Fire Tower
  • Lake of Bays, Hunstville
