Going for a scenic drive in a luxury car will always be an incredible and unforgettable experience. However, there are certain times of the year when it is even more enjoyable than usual due to the weather or other variable circumstances.
Out of all the possible times to drive a luxury vehicle, fall certainly stands out among the rest. Not only is it usually the perfect temperature in the fall—not too hot or cold—but the changing colours of the leaves make it a truly breathtaking time of year.
Places that are already naturally gorgeous all year round have their beauty amplified to the max during fall as they get painted with an assortment of reds, yellows, oranges, and browns.
This makes fall one of the best times of year to snap some attractive scenic photos, and it makes for a lovely time of year to drive along roads lined with trees of all different types. If there was ever a good excuse to hold off on that luxury car experience in Ontario that you have been dreaming about, then waiting for the leaves to change in fall would definitely be it.
Where are the most beautiful spots to drive with a luxury car in the fall?
Of course, anywhere you can find trees, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of fall, but some places in Ontario are even more stunning than others at this time of year. If you want your luxury car experience to be as incredible as possible, the Niagara Escarpment is definitely the area to be.
This beautiful stretch of land in Southern Ontario is home to some of the best fall colours around, including those that you can encounter in the following places:
1. Dundas Peak
If you want to enjoy a truly amazing vantage point that will allow you to overlook thousands of trees of all different colours and hues, then Dundas Peak, located off the top of the Niagara Escarpment in the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, will definitely provide you with such an opportunity.
If you follow the Tews Falls Side Trail to this impressive overlook, you will really be able to fully immerse yourself in the best of the best fall colours. Just keep in mind that reservations are required to hike to this point at this time of year to prevent overcrowding, which you can book at either 9 a.m., noon, or 3 p.m. each day.
2. Smokey Hollow Bruce Trail
Another great spot to bask in some wonderful fall colours while enjoying other scenery is at Smokey Hollow Falls in Waterdown and along the trail leading up to this stunning waterfall, which is a loop connecting various parts of the Bruce Trail.
As you hike along this trail, you can enjoy an eye-catching little stream that will likely be carrying fallen leaves of all colours through the forest at this time of year, as it is lined with trees in various states of change during the fall. Follow this stream until you come to the spectacular grand finale—the waterfall itself—which is undoubtedly a sight of beauty that challenges that of the fall foliage surrounding it.
3. The Chedoke Radial Trail
Another popular destination if you want to enjoy fall colours is the Chedoke Radial Trail, which runs along the base of the Escarpment in West Hamilton from the Cherokee Civic Golf Course to Scenic Drive.
This trail is a five-kilometre loop that will take you past some impressively tall and colourful trees that reflect a golden light through the forest at certain times of the day in the fall. After hiking up the trail from the golf course, you can follow Scenic Drive atop Hamilton Mountain and take the Chedoke or Dundurn stairs back down.
4. The Royal Botanical Gardens, Burlington
There is nothing quite like the scenes you will take in while enjoying the 27 kilometers of walking trails, which include over 20 lookout points, at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington.
This area, which is home to the Carolinian forest, has an endless amount of leaf-viewing options, plus some areas where you can also take in the beauty of fall flowers. For instance, at the rock garden, you will be able to see some uncommon perennials, flowering conifers, and Japanese maples, as well as some lovely water feature displays.
5. The Devil’s Punchbowl
A name like “The Devil’s Punchbowl” is bound to grab your attention, but its name is certainly the least interesting feature of this scenic spot that is even more breathtaking in autumn.
The Devil’s Punchbowl has earned a reputation as being one of the most worthwhile sights on the Niagara Escarpment. This deep multi-coloured gorge is always mind-boggling, especially in fall when it is accentuated by various colours and shades from the foliage. While you are there, try out the 11-kilometer Dofasco 2000 Trail, which will take you through upper Stoney Creek and through Vinemount Swamp Forest along an extensive boardwalk.
