Blaze of glory

All good things must come to an end. All great things usually come to an end with fireworks. That’s sort of how I see fall in Muskoka.

Summer in Muskoka is amazing. People come from far and wide to enjoy our lakes and beaches, cottages and resorts. It’s a carefree time, even for the people who live and work in the region all year round.

So shouldn’t it go out with a bang? Our spectacular fall colours are kind of like nature’s fireworks, symbolizing the end of summer’s season-long party.

As we roll into a cooler, calmer season in Muskoka, we tend to reflect on our past. Whether it’s the season we just enjoyed or the lifetime that has made us who we are, it’s nice to take a quiet stroll through our spectacular forests and trails and think about where we’ve been.

In this season’s Sideroads, we take a look at the history of Muskoka. From the Dorset fire tower’s risqué reputation to the secrets of Windermere, there is a rich past just waiting to be discovered.

With Remembrance Day right around the corner, we’ve included an amazing story about a group of Huntsville volunteers that has restored a piece of history from the Second World War.

There is no shortage of paths and trails for you to enjoy this fall, but if you need a little inspiration, check out our Cavalcade of Colour section. We’ve got plenty of ideas for you to try out, so grab your copy of Sideroads, grab a friend, and head outside.
