Fall Colour Tour

Fall Colour Tour

Everyone marvels at the blazing autumn colours in the South Georgian Bay region come October. To see the most brilliantly-hued leaves per kilometre, it’s worth a drive through Pretty River Valley Provincial Park.

Scenic Drives

Route:

Start at Fisher Fields at the intersection of 6th Street and 10th Line on the outskirts of Collingwood. Head south on the 10th Concession for several kilometres and then turn right onto 33/34 Sideroad. This soon turns into Pretty River Road which winds through the hilly, thickly forested park (non-operating, with no staff or facilities). Pretty River Road veers southwest until it meets the Osprey-Blue Mountains Townline. Here is a T-junction where you either turn right to continue on Pretty River Road, or left in the direction of Nottawa and Collingwood. (If you turn right, you’ll find more hilly country.) Turn left on the Osprey-Blue Mountains Townline and stay on it until County Road 124—turn left again and you will soon reach the thriving village of Nottawa, just south of Collingwood. Here you can stop for lunch or dinner at Dornoch Tap & Grill, which boasts a heated patio for socially distanced al fresco dining.
