The sun is a little sleepier, the air a bit crisper, and the leaves are full of colourful red and yellow hues. To help get in the spirit of cozy sweaters and pumpkin flavoured everything, we’ve rounded up some of the best seasonal to-do’s for you to enjoy this fall.
Meander Through Cottonwood Park
Take the bikes out for a ride or explore the countless trails around Cottonwood Island Nature Park by foot while you try to find all the hidden tree carvings. During late September the forest comes alive in a beautiful sky of yellow and red, so don’t forget to take your camera with you for some candid photos along the riverbanks.
You’ll need to bundle up more, and pack heavier gear but shoulder season camping trips can be an absolute gem at this time of year. The crowds are mostly gone, the hiking trails are waiting for you and the lake’s reflection of autumn colours can be an absolute stunner while you cruise around the water during an afternoon paddle.
Food is aplenty, and the local Farmer’s Markets are overflowing with the best produce you can buy. Head down together as a family to pick up your local meats, veggies and staples for your next dinner feast and enjoy sampling the local goodies and live music while you take in the bustling atmosphere.
Visit the Giants At the Ancient Forest/ChunT’oh Whudujut
Located approximately 115km east of Prince George, the Ancient Forest is a great place to visit in the fall! The universally accessible boardwalk provides access for people with all abilities to this thousand-year-old forest filled with western red cedars and over 400 plant species. Missed your chance? The Ancient Forest is just as spectacular with a pair of snowshoes!
Cooling water temperatures make autumn a fantastic time to spend some time angling. Before you head out, stop by the Visitor Centre to grab our handy Top 10 Fishing Spots brochure.
