Fall in Muskoka is a magical time when colorful foliage returns, cranberry bogs are ready for harvest, and a crisp breeze compliments paddling adventures.

Refer to the Ontario Fall Colour Report to find the peak times to see foliage around Muskoka. Whether you want to spend the season hiking or celebrating with us at a local festival, there is something for everyone this fall in Muskoka. 

5 Ways to See Fall Foliage Around Muskoka

  3. You can find several gorgeous fall hiking trails within Algonquin Park. The Track & Tower Trail offers an incredible scenic overlook where you can see fall colours from a brand new vantage point.

  4. Rent a kayak from Swift Outdoor Centre on the Georgian Bay and head out for a morning paddle.
