Toronto Guide: The Ultimate Fall 2017 Bucket List 

It’s the start of crisp fall weather, beautiful foliage, sweater weather and the return of pumpkin spice lattes. From fall activities to beautiful hikes, we’ve rounded up a list of the top things to do this fall in Toronto

For Fall Foliage Views:

  • Dundas Peak: Dundas Peak is a popular fall hike/look-out point as it provides stunning forest views of Dundas and Hamilton. The trail is located within Spencer Gorge, an hour outside of the city

  • Killarney’s Crack (7 km): This is a challenging hike that will bring you to one of the most spectacular views in all of Killarney Provincial Park with spectacular sparkling inland lakes, rolling white hills and the vast coastline of Georgian Bay. Make sure to get an early start for this trail - and bring proper hiking shoes as there are several challenging points throughout this hike.
