This Ontario park is the best place to see the leaves change colour (PHOTOS)

This Thanksgiving, if you’re looking to change up your traditional family dinner plans, we highly recommend heading out into the great outdoors and taking in the beautiful fall foliage.

More importantly, we suggest checking out the leaves as they change colour—especially since it’s expected to reach a high of 14ºC in the city this weekend.

But rather than heading to the most obvious parks in the city like High Park or the Don Valley, we suggest heading on a mini road trip to Algonquin Park, where the fall foliage is at its peak.

Algonquin Park is easily the mecca of places to watch the leaves evolve from their summer greens and is world-renowned for its fantastic fall foliage.

According to Ontario Parks, many areas in the park are currently showing excellent colour, with most maple trees featuring fiery orange and red leaves.

For optimal viewing, we recommend heading to the Centennial Ridges Trail, which is one of the best trails in Algonquin for breathtaking scenery. You can find various lookouts on this trail, providing the perfect viewing point.

Even though Algonquin is a little over three hours away, it’s definitely worth the trek and features 7,600 square kilometres of space to explore.

If you still need more convincing, you can take a look at how beautiful the park is in the fall below.
