Killarney - Report Date : September 14, 2018
Dominant Colour : Green
Colour Change : 20 - Leaf Fall : 10
Best viewing : The colours in the park are just beginning to change; an earlier fall season than we have seen in recent years. From Granite Ridge lookout point the primary colour is still green with considerable burgundy-to-red leaf change showing through. Other prime lookout locations include The Crack Trail, Sunset Rock (beside campsite #77), Silver Peak, and Lake of the Woods Trail. The drive down Highway 637 between Killarney and Highway 69 also provides a tantalizing show of fall colours. Georgian Bay lake effect results in warmer, wetter conditions closer to Killarney, and therefore slightly slower colour change in the leaves. Thus, the trip to the park from Hwy 69 delivers you through forests of yellow-green and orange, which are already quite transitioned into autumn colours. The closer you get to the park, the more you will see darker green interspersed with burgundy and red.
