A Lookout Hike In Ontario Lets You Gaze Over A Gorge Filled With Fall Colours (VIDEO)
It's almost prime hiking time in Ontario. When it comes to fall views, this place checks all the boxes. You can drink up stunning shades from a towering lookout area at this spot. Miles of orange and red trees are waiting to greet you at Ontario's Devil's Glen fall hike this season.
Autumn is one of Ontario's most gorgeous seasons, but sadly it doesn't last long.
Start planning some fall hikes early so that you don't miss out on any of the beauty.
This vibrant spot is one place you'll definitely want to visit. Located a couple of hours outside of Toronto, Devil's Glen Provincial Park boasts a towering view of the world below.
Located along the Niagara Escarpment, the park contains rock outcrops, wetlands, woodland hills, and a river valley.
You don't need to go far to enjoy the view. Before you start the hike, you can head to a platform to soak up all the fall beauty.
The wooden structure looks out over a deep bedrock gorge and offers vast views of trees drenched in red and orange hues.
The gorge stretches as far as the eye can see, and its partial limestone walls were carved by the last retreating glacier.
The park is non-operating, which means there is no fee to explore this little piece of autumn paradise.
There are no washrooms or facilities on site, so be sure to plan ahead when visiting.
The hike leads through many steep, sloping areas which may be challenging for some hikers. Make sure you're wearing appropriate clothing for the adventure.
Another hike worth checking out this season is the Thornton Bales Conservation Area.
This spot has nearly 100 steps that lead through a vibrant forest to a ravine.
There are many other fall hikes to experience around the province, so get ready for some great adventures.
