Fall colours coming out

Record Staff

As trees start to turn across the Townships, the region’s parks and outdoor centres have opened their gates to all those looking to take in all the fall foliage. While anyone can enjoy the beauty of the leaves anywhere there are trees, for free, many of the local ski centres make a grand event of the changing colours every year.
In the Magog-Orford region, the population is invited to participate in the annual “Flambée des couleurs” on weekends until the 18 of October.
Fall begins at Owl’s Head this coming Saturday and continues until October 12, and Mont Sutton is following a similar schedule.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes had to be made to the way many of these events usually operate. The health measures recommended by government authorities will be applied at each site to ensure the safety of visitors and employees. In many cases tickets should be reserved online in advance, although details vary from location to location and can be vaerified on the websites of each park.
Tourisme Quebec’s “Bonjour Quebec website maintains an interactive map of the fall colours that is updated weekly. It can be consulted at https://www.bonjourquebec.com/en-ca/discover/seasons-in-quebec/fall. As of this writing, much of the region is still considered to be in the lead up to the seasonal peak with the exception of Mont-Megantic Provincial park, which has declared its leaves to be at their prime right now.
