Start your car, as you need to explore Ottawa's boardwalk trail that will take you to the best fall colours.

To try it for yourself, head to Mer Bleue in the east of the city.

There is a short 1.2-kilometre flat path that will take you into a 7,700-years-old bog.

The entire journey will take you under 30 minutes and is perfect for novice hikers.

Within the wetland, there are so many unique sights to see, as it is home to many rare birds and plants.

But the area is particularly stunning in the autumn because of all the brilliant yellow larch trees.

What are you waiting for? You can see it for yourself this weekend.
