hkskyline's 2019 hunting fall colours in the Greater Toronto Area

Fall is a great time to visit Toronto. Around early to mid-October, the foliage frenzy is everywhere. You don't need to go far to find a quiet spot to enjoy the colours. The Glen Stewart Ravine near the Beaches is a short walk just off the streetcar line on Queen Street for a lovely taster.



























The crowds tend to hover around High Park, an exceptionally famous foliage spot in the fall, and for cherry blossoms in the spring as well.











Venturing outside the city, you won't see a shortage of crowds despite a long drive outside the 416 boundary. Located an hour west of Toronto in Hamilton, Spencer Gorge Conservation Area is home to both waterfalls and a beautiful gorge lit up by foliage. During peak season, park authorities have arranged buses to bring visitors into the park.

Tell me, when were these wonderful photos taken? I've been dreaming of visiting Canada for a long time, my friend moved there after marriage. I really want to watch such a beauty there. But I'm afraid that at this time all the leaves have already fallen...

The trees were more densely packed by my school but the colors were the same.

Beautiful photos! Thank you for posting them!

“Fall is a great time to visit Toronto.” I couldn't agree more, but I'd like to invite you guys to visit Toronto in deep January where I experienced great time, awesome time, unforgettable days.

The Evergreen Brickworks in the Don Valley is a good place to view the skyline framed against some colours.

Heading north of the city, Lake Wilcox is a quiet community park although development is creeping around all corners.

Huntsville is a good spot to view the fall colours. I had thought I was too late in the season, but a good surprise emerged.







Plenty of cheap casino buses also make their way from various points in the city to Niagara Falls. After enjoying some time gambling my life away, I walked out to see a less colourful landscape than points further north even though I came a week after Huntsville.
