Autumn starts showing in Muskoka as cold weather prompts leaf change
The fall colours are starting to show in Muskoka.
According to Ontario Travel’s Fall Colour Progression Report, the leaf change across the district should be at 20 per cent, meaning there are small pockets of colour starting to show. Tourism officials say the sudden push in colour change is likely due to the colder weather which hit Muskoka this week.
Some of the suggested lookout points to get the best view of these autumn colours are Lions Lookout in Huntsville, Huckleberry Rock near Port Carling and the very popular Dorset Tower. Algonquin Highlands officials suggest visiting the tower during the week to avoid the busy weekend rush.
Tourism officials also suggest catching some of the fall scenery by driving along Muskoka Beach Road between Gravenhurst and Bracebridge, Highway 117 in Lake of Bays and Muskoka Road 13.
