The Good Life, Travel
It’s one of the great pleasures of living in this part of the world — the fall colours. It’s more than a visual treat — there’s also the feel of the leaves crunching underfoot in the brisk air. Granted, this year’s display isn’t quite as vivid because the weather has been so mild, but there’s still time to enjoy the foliage, and the best spots are quite close to Toronto. Here’s Edyta Zdansevic of the Canadian Automobile Association.
“Places that you can hit would be Beaver Valley, the village of Kimberly — just south on Grey County Road 13. You can also hit the Hockley Valley Area — you’re going to go through Dufferin County Road 7 and Third Line. And the Mono Cliffs area — just beautiful for fall colour, and it’s not that far; you can take the drive through the forks of the Credit, in which you’ll see not only beautiful scenery, beautiful trees, but you’ll see some stunning homes as well.”
If you want to drive a little further, go north of Peterborough and tour the area from Lakefield to Barry’s Bay.
