Lets face it.. Muskoka is beautiful all over during the Autumn season. Personally it's my favorite time of year to get out and capture some stunning landscape shots. I hope you enjoy these locations within Muskoka as much as I do. Here's my list with #1 obviously being the best!
Muskoka is flooded with waterfalls! Haha... When it comes to spring, excuse the pun. Muskoka is filled with natural wonder and beautiful scenery. Take a walk to see one of these beautiful waterfalls. Some of these hikes are easy, a few are more challenging, but they all lead to scenery that's sure to make it worth the time and effort. With the autumn season just around the corner, there's no better time to get out and do some exploring in Muskoka!
5. Slater Falls & May Chutes - Fraserburg
Slater Falls and May Chutes is located down Fraserburg road. A scenic drive to this location leads to a hiking trail. Find the opening and you'll find nature's treasure! My favorite time of year to visit this location is fall in Muskoka.
4. Kealls Falls - Muskoka Falls
This smaller waterfall is located in the town of Bracebridge amongst the forest between two subdivisions; Covered Bridge and Meadow Heights. There are several different access points to enter the trail down to the Waterfalls. I recommend entering the trail located beside the Covered Bridge. It's the perfect place for a beautiful walk or hike any time of year.
3. Bracebridge Falls - Bracebridge
As a local resident of Bracebridge I take pride in the sensational waterfall located in the center of town. These falls are hard to miss! Not only are they beautiful year round but a great place to go for a swim.
2. High Falls - Bracebridge
I've been visiting High Falls since I was a child. As a treat, my family would pick up some take-out, head to High Falls, sit in on the exposed bedrock to enjoy some family time. High Falls has three main gorgeous waterfalls that each offer a different atmosphere. The main waterfall is quite obvious and can be seen best after a short hike. The trail down can be a little more challenging in Spring and Winter so proper attire is advised. Located to the right of the main falls is second stunning waterfall! The third and smaller waterfall is located just inside what I like to call the magical forest, just south of the main falls. I call this area magical because I always get the most stunning photos from this location. As the sun shines down through the trees it's magninifent!
1. Wilson's Falls - Bracebridge
This is my absolute favorite spot to get out for a hike in Muskoka. A journey on this trail will lead you past two stunning waterfalls. Depending on the current water level the large falls creates more sections of racing water falling over the bedrock. It's absolutely breathtaking! Although Wilson's Falls can be accessed from many different areas, the main and easiest access closest to the large falls, is located at the end of Wilson's Falls road.
Thanks for reading!
On this beautiful Spring day I had the pleasure of hiking Wilson's Falls in Bracebridge with my best friend. This is one of my favorite hikes right in the heart of Muskoka! I often refer to most of the trail as a magical forest. The pathway along the water is actually the bank of an ancient, broader, deeper river which explains the unique beauty of this adventure. The water levels are currently very high in Muskoka causing the surrounding areas to flood. Although the current has calmed in the last few days fast moving water is still predominant.
The days are getting longer which means so are the beautiful sunsets! For anyone that knows me it will come at no surprise that I've been out chasing the sun every chance I get. The saying April showers brings May flowers is pretty much a fact here in Muskoka. In other words the majority of days are covered with clouds and sporadic showers bringing nature back to vibrant life. Enjoy these beautiful views while I'm out capturing more! :)
There is a short hiking trail down the street from where we which leads to Kealls Falls. Every season since we moved in we take a walk through the what I like to call "magical forest" that leads to a beautiful waterfall. In spring the water levels are high. Most of the forest is still dormant but as you can see lots of vibrant moss grows quickly on the many fallen wet trees. It's truly a beautiful hike and I look forward to capturing it again in the summer!
A beautiful Spring day in Muskoka and an adventure with my best friend. We took a drive out to Milford Bay to explore on the oldest surface rocks on the planet while enjoying the great views of Lake Muskoka. I love this hiking trail because of the breathtaking scenery of Lake Muskoka from above, and the the journey to explore the alluring pink rock cut. We stopped to sit, relax and bask in the sun while we took it all in!
April showers bring May flowers. Muskoka is beautiful no matter what the season. We went for a morning plane ride over the Muskoka Lakes. Even with the rain headed our way, we traveled to the JW Marriott on Lake Rosseau (Where Jared and I got Married) and back to Muskoka Airport. It was beautiful to see how much color has already come back to the grass and forests. As we admired the views from above it made me even more excited for boating season to come!
