It's Peak Time To See Fall Colours In Ontario But Only For A Limited Time
Take in the beautiful foliage before the trees lose their leaves.
One of the best parts of fall is watching the leaves change from green to beautiful yellows, oranges and reds. Fall colours in Ontario are reaching their peak across the province. But they won't last long so make sure you get out and see them while you can.
As November quickly approaches, it's time to make the most of the beautiful fall colours before the trees lose their leaves and the season starts transitioning to winter.
In many parts of Ontario, including Toronto, leaves are at their best when it comes to fall colours. But the more north you go the higher the chance of leaves already being off the trees.
"Beautiful fall colours can be found everywhere in our forests. Start with the ground plants and work your way up to the canopy," Ontario Parks tweeted.
According to the fall colour report by Ontario Parks, most of the fall colours in Ontario are either at their peak already or just about to reach their peak.
If you've been waiting for the perfect moment to go out into nature and take in the fall colours, this is it.
Central Ontario is the best region to take in the fall colours because most trees have completely changed but the leaves are still on the trees. So you can take in the beautiful leaf colours while they're actually on the trees and not on the ground.
Places in southern Ontario and western Ontario are well on their way to having the best fall colours. Some places are still not fully changed but most provincial parks are seeing more than 50% colour change.
Bronte Creek is your best bet to see amazing fall colours at their peak in southern Ontario. The leaves are completely changed from green and only 30% have fallen off the trees.
In regions where the fall colours aren't at their peak just yet, some provincial parks aren't reporting a lot of colour change but that's okay. As the season goes on the leaf colours will change with it.
In southwestern Ontario, Port Burwell, Wheatley and Pinery are only reporting 20% to 30% leaf change with almost all the leaves still on the trees. So those might be your best bets for later on in the season.
So now's the time to get outside and take in a staple of the fall season because winter is coming.
