Best Fall Lookouts and Views

It’s hard not to fall in love with the spectacular views in South Georgian Bay, especially during the fall months. What better way to admire the fall colours than from one of these vantage points?


Scenic Caves Suspension Bridge

Walk across Southern Ontario’s longest suspension bridge and marvel at the beauty of South Georgian Bay from this lookout. You will be able to admire the stunning fall colours while overlooking Georgian Bay. Admission is required to access the suspension bridge.


Bird’s Eye View with Big Blue Air

Adventure awaits with the ultimate Blue Mountain experience. Big Blue Air offers unique and memorable helicopter tours across the region that will give you a picture-perfect fall view.


Irish Mountain Lookout

Across the Bighead River Valley from Scotch Mountain, Irish Mountain Lookout offers one of the best fall views of the area. The sweep of Nottawasaga Bay with the Niagara Escarpment rising behind it will take your breath away. Parking, picnic tables, and public bathrooms are available.


Blue Mountain Lookout

This lookout gives a birds eye view of the Blue Mountain Village, Collingwood, Georgian Bay, and even Wasaga Beach and Midland on a clear day. Follow Scenic Caves Road and veer right at the bend, following Grey Road 119. There is parking on the right hand side as well as across the road on your left. Access to any of the Blue Mountain trails will require a pass.


Epping – John Muir Lookout

This lookout is best viewed in the fall season when all the leaves in the Beaver Valley are vibrant reds and golds. Epping lookout can be accessed off Grey County Road 7, north of Kimberley.
