Explore A Corn Maze
Howells Farm is known for its fall festival where you can celebrate everything autumn. You can start your day off in their corn maze which has multiple games with different levels of difficulty.

Pick Apples At An Orchard
If you’re looking to make the perfect pie, you’ll want to pick your own apples. Parkway Orchards is the perfect place to explore and is known for its peach and apple trees.
You can wander around the estate, grab some photos and collect a basket of the tart fruit.
Enjoy A Maple Tasting Board
If you love all things maple, you’ll want to check out White Meadows Farms. Until November 5, you can get a massive tray filled with their entire lineup of 10 gourmet maple products, including four different flavours of syrup.
On top of that, you’ll be able to sample locally made smoked maple comfort cream cheese, maple cheddar and all-beef maple summer sausage. It will also be served with two kinds of crackers, fruit, mini buttermilk pancakes and a glass of maple iced tea.
Take A Breathtaking Hike
You’ll have to add Woodend Conservation Area to your bucket list if you’re looking for a spot to take in the changing leaves.
The spot has multiple trails to explore with stunning vantage points where you can take in the view. The trails are pretty easy (with a few tougher spots) so it’s perfect if you’re just looking to take a stroll.
