Early September is one of our favourite times in the Park. The days are still warm for canoeing & swimming - and cool enough to light a fire. And...no bugs! Visit and enjoy this quieter time at Arowhon, especially mid-week.
Summer turns to fall in the blink of an eye. We've already seen very cool night time temperatures. Many guests wait for the cool autumn to visit because of the spectacular show of fall colour from mid-September to mid-October. Fall midweek is usually quieter then weekends.
Arowhon Pines provides guests with a vehicle permit for all Park day use - access to all hiking trails, the Visitor's Centre, Logging Museum and Art Gallery. You can order a packed lunch for the day and picnic along the Highway 60 Corridor or on one of the trails. The best Park trails to see fall colour are: Hardwood Lookout, Track & Tower, Centennial Ridges, Lookout and Booth's Rock (my favourite!). You will be impressed with the Arowhon Road as you drive in!
There is a good chance of seeing a bull Moose in the fall with its antlers fully grown and ready for the rutting season. You might hear howling wolves at night.
Please visit the Park website for fall foliage updates: http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/.
Arowhon Pines Room and Meal Rates decrease 10% in the fall - $242.00 per person per night including three meals starting September 5th. No single supplements!
