Foliage is rapidly approaching brilliant!

Its a excellent chance to grab the fishing pole and canoe, and take it all in.

I got out for a mountain bike ride at Kingdom Trails in East Burke…it doesn’t get any better. The rolling trails provide a great number of possibilities for the autumn expertise as they wind though maple forests and over hilltop fields, reports Caledonia and Essex Counties Forester Matt Langlais.

Take a stroll by means of some of our town greens and by means of the villages. You will surely locate a coffee shop exactly where you can have a seat and relax, Jon Bouton, Windsor County Forester suggests.
