Horseshoe Valley Road is where it’s at! Take a drive down the road to see all the fabulous colours. Maybe even stop in at Horseshoe Resort for a hike or bike ride through their gorgeous trails!

How about a beautiful boat cruise to see the Fall colours? Get more out of your scenic views by touring along Lake Couchiching with Orillia Boat Cruises. They have All Day Fall Colours tours in September and October, but hurry! They sell out quick!
