With its many parks, Brampton has no shortage of places to see fall colours. Not only that, but the Etobicoke Creek Trail cuts through the whole city, going north to south. But to witness some of the most dramatic fall foliage the area has to offer you’ll have to take a short trip outside of Brampton.
Forks of the Credit is a beautiful expanse along the Niagara Escarpment. The provincial park sits along the Bruce Trail and is beautiful any time of year, but fall will give you some of its most picturesque views.
The are lots of ways to enjoy the area’s beauty. You can take a drive around the winding roads in the area surrounding Forks Of The Credit Provincial Park. You can hike within the park, too. In fact, the esteemed Bruce Trail runs through Forks Of The Credit. Getting on the trail will give you the opportunity to explore part of the Bruce Trail and check out the Credit River and Cataract Falls.
One of the most popular ways to enjoy the fall colours is through the Credit Valley Explorer, a train that will take you on a 74-kilometre ride through this gorgeous area.
The train departs from Orangeville with tours starting at $50 for adults. Spots in late September and early October when the views are the best go fast, so you’ll want to book early. Check out the tour website for more details.
Aerial views show that the leaves are starting to change, but haven’t yet fully reached their prime. Foliage is expected to be at its most vibrant by mid-October. Find more about Forks Of The Credit Provincial Park here.
