Once the autumnal equinox comes 'round, the process of trees leaves' turning colour begins and fall in Montreal is a brief but beautiful time lasting from late September until late October to explore the city. While the island is flush with trees (the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science's last count put us at more than 300,000), there's no need to sit indoors watching a tree change colour outside your apartment window. That's like watching paint dry.
It's time to go for strolls in Montreal parks, maybe take some scenic drives from Montreal, go hiking near Montreal—anywhere and everywhere you can snag a panoramic shot or fiery red, ripe oranges and mellow yellows. Consider these the best places to experience this crisp of colourful season while it lasts.
