Is Summer Finally Here?

Wow, what a summer this has been for hiking. Plenty of rain, hoards of biting insects, fall-like temperatures, what more could a hiker ask for (ha).

It looks like our luck is finally changing as our Southern Ontario summer is starting just in time for fall. I don't know about you but this is my favorite time of the year to hit the trails and immerse myself in the less traveled regions of Ontario.

We are truly blessed in Southern Ontario with an abundance of trail systems that will suit everyone from the most serious hiker who likes to pound off 25k or more a day to the casual trail wanderer who simply likes to spend a few hours walking a trail closer to home.

Don't forget to pack your camera, especially if you're venturing into a new area. You just never know what memories you'll be able to capture. And it's certainly time to start thinking about those fantastic fall vistas as mother nature sheds her summer greenery and dawns the glowing robes of autumn.

Wherever your late summer or fall hikes take you I hope you'll take the time to post a comment on the Southern Ontario Hiking blog and share your tips, trips and adventures with all of us.

Happy trails,
