From coast-to-coast Canada is graced with so many amazing nature trails, and they are even more beautiful in the fall. The vibrant colours and the crisp air is perfect for a solo hike or a family outing.
Deer Lake Park, Burnaby, British Columbia
This hidden gem located in the metro of Vancouver is the perfect spot for a picturesque fall lakeside stroll. You can take a stroll on the path around the lake or take a little boat ride on the lake and bask in the beautiful horizon.
Floe Lake, Kootenay National Park, British Columbia
If you are looking for a more challenging hike, Floe Lake is the spot for you. During this 21-kilometre hike, you will come by an alpine lake at the base of a 1,000-metre-tall rock. Kootenay National Park is one of the quieter national parks, making Floe Lake the perfect place to escape your hectic life.
Saddleback Pass, Banff National Park, Alberta
The path for this hike begins at the famous Lake Louise but then quickly takes you to a lower-traffic path. Throughout the hike, you will catch glimpses of Fairview Mountain or the Bow River Valley.
Arethusa Cirque, Kananaskis County, Alberta
Roughly an hour and a half from Calgary is the secret spot for the best larch viewing. This 4.5-kilometre hike winds you across a jagged mountain along with a peaceful mountain lake.
Lions Lookout Trail, Lion’s Head Provincial Nature Preserve, Ontario
Lions Lookout is a breath-taking, short hike, in the Muskoka area for fall leaf-viewing. Only a 0.8-kilometre climb to a 200-foot cliff. At the top, you will have panoramic views of Huntsville and the lakes surrounding the area. This beautiful spot is only a 2-and-a-half-hour drive from Toronto.
The Crack, Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario
Again, if you are looking for another more difficult hike this is the one for you. For this hike, it is advised to wear proper hiking boots and hiking gloves, as the terrain is quite rough but is worth it for the spectacular view.
Mont Pinacle, Coaticook, Quebec
Only two hours away from Montreal, Mont Pinacle is a 7 kilometre-loop, where once you reach the top you can see breathtaking views of Lac Lyster, and the never-ending span of beautiful orange, red and green trees.
With winter quickly approaching it is time to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather we get and spend some time outdoors!
