Fall colours won’t last for much longer, but this round up from Hamilton Halton Brant insiders will help guide you on one last unbe-leaf-able autumn adventure.

Did you know that the individual colours of fall leaves in the fall offer a great clue as to what type of tree you’re seeing in the distance? Oaks become red, brown, or russet. Hickories are golden and bronze. Aspen and Yellow Poplars become a beautiful golden yellow, dogwoods a purplish red, and beech turns a light tan. Get all kinds of scientific secrets about fall foliage from the folks at Conservation Halton.

CBC Hamilton sees fall as the perfect time to step to it. Use their guide to Hamilton’s outdoor steps with fabulous fall views to inspire your next round of colourful cardio.

Grab your smartphone or GPS and head out on a fall search for the Bruce Trail’s most unique natural treasures. Get the GPS coordinates for 8 of the coolest landmarks along the stretch of the Bruce Trail that runs through Hamilton and Halton.
