Algonquin Provincial Park is well known as a top ranking fall colors tour destination in Ontario Canada. The vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes form the essence of Algonquin park.
The west gate of Algonquin Park is about 258 km in north of Toronto, similar distance from its east gate to Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. Trails, camping sites, and services spots are located along 56 km long segment of highway 60 between the two gates. Day pass is $16 per-vehicle valid from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. A day pass can be used to access other provincial parks in the same day.
Map of Algonquin Park is available at gate office. Information of trails are clearly provided on map with names, lengths, features, time needed and rating. Trails of good fall foliage view are highlighted with maple leaf icons. The painter in the picture above was working on his painting of the lake view from top of Hardwood Lookout trail.
In addition to many big views, photography enthusiasts can capture variety of objects for variety of subjects. The shot above was taken on the path of Hardwood Lookout trail. The remained red foliage on top of the trees draw my attention as twinkling in sun light. The size, shape and colors of the foliage were so lovely that reminded me the plum flowers of traditional Chinese painting.
