Fall in Love with Autumn: How to Take Advantage of This Fleeting Season
Fall in love with fall this year and make the most of the coziest season with an autumn CABINSCAPE adventure! From dazzling tree top adventures to fall chairlift rides, we’ve listed our Top Things to Do on your CABINSCAPE stay to make the most of autumn’s splendour!
Enjoy breathtaking views on a Canopy Tour of Haliburton Forest while staying at our 11 cabins located on site. Walk through the autumn treetops for views from 10-20 meters above the ground. At over half a kilometre long this is the longest canopy boardwalk of its kind in the world! Once you’ve come down, explore the 400km of endless all-season hiking and cycling trails and get up close and personal to the changing colours. The trails are well marked and maintained varying from easy, flat walks to more adventurous routes.
For more seasonal fun, explore the fall calendar at Yours Outdoors for a full roster of fall activities – from a Predator Prowl, to mushroom hunting and rock hounding, there is something for everyone!
As the leaves begin to change, enjoy a Fall Colours Chairlift Ride at Calabogie Peaks! Take the chair to the top of the mountain and experience the expansive views on your way up. From there you can choose to hike your way down or hop off at the top to snap a few pictures of the sky-high view and ride the chair back down to the bottom. Running for the last two weekends of September and first two weekends in October, there’s no better way to experience the changing of the seasons. Purchase your tickets when on-site at Calabogie Peaks.
Alternatively, take advantage of some of the best hiking in Ontario and explore the best of autumn on foot. Calabogie Peaks Resort is the trailhead for a fascinating network of Ontario hiking trails that expand beyond the resort boundaries and cross over thousands of acres of Crown Land… including the renowned Eagle’s Nest Lookout!
Pet an alpaca at the Windmill Point Alpaca Farm! Take a guided tour around the farm and learn more about these adorable animals living nearby our Cabinscape Camp Kawarthas location. The farm is currently home to 8 alpacas who are cool and curious animals the whole family can enjoy.
Meander the trails through our property or visit the nearby Balsam Lake Provincial Park, located just 10 minutes from your cabin. You’ll find numerous nature hikes and cycle routes for all skill levels. While in the area, check out the second-annual Kawartha Fall Festival at Ken Reid Conservation Area on Saturday, September 23, 2023. This free, family-friendly event will feature up-close animal encounters, a vibrant vendors market and an array of delectable food trucks!
During your stay at our Lanark County cabins, attend one of the many fall events in Perth! The Night Market on September 16th begins at 5pm. Wander the streets and encounter entertainers and artisans, and dine under the stars at a variety of restaurants and pubs. Shop with vendors open late as you stroll while surrounded by Perth’s heritage buildings. There are also many Halloween events here throughout the month including a pumpkin parade, zombie and ghost walks, trick-or-treating, and more!
The Perth Farmer’s Market season also runs until Thanksgiving weekend (October 7th) which includes local produce, home-baked pies, pastries and even live music. Grab some fresh eats and head to one of the many quaint parks or enjoy an autumn picnic along the Tay River.
