Spring is a fabulous time to go hiking in Algonquin. The forest awakens with songs of the returning migrant birds and their elaborate mating rituals. Moose are in abundance and can easily be seen by the roadside eating the winter salt.
For a change of scenery, paddle up the Oxtongue River to Ragged Falls and hike to the top, a fabulous 2 hour trip. Or maybe a quiet tour of the north end of the Lake with its wet lands, beaver lodges, high rock cliffs and Speckle trout fishing. We have a wide array of canoes and kayaks for choose from.
In September the days are warm and there is a nip in the night air. Fall is a great time of year to hike in Algonquin. The leaves usually start to turn colour around the middle of September and traditionally last until Thanksgiving. Algonquin is world renowned for its brilliant Red, Orange, and Yellow Cavalcade of Colour.
