fall hikes selfie spots brampton

Autumn is upon us and there are some seriously selfie-worthy spots in Brampton if you’re looking to snap some photos with the fall colours.

Brampton was recently named one of Canada’s most Instagrammable cities, and Insuaga.com has put together a list of five beautiful locations you can visit this fall to take some family photos or to up your social media game.

Claireville Conservation Area Trail

The City of Brampton and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) christened the new Claireville North Multi-Use Trail last month, adding another 3.7 kilometres to Brampton’s more than 600 kilometres of cycling, hiking and walking paths and trails.

With two new pedestrian bridges that cross over the West Humber River, a fully accessible parking area and two new community trail connections, the new trail gives residents easier access to one of Brampton’s largest greenspaces.

Etobicoke Creek Trail

This recreational trail is great for a quiet and peaceful walk to take in the changing foliage.

The two-kilometre-long connection fills a gap in the trail between Brampton and Mississauga, allowing safe passage under Highway 407 and Highway 410 from the Kennedy Road Trail entrance to the city limit.

Dundas Peak Trail

This trail is located in Hamilton’s Spencer Gorge Conservation Area and will take you through scenic vistas, including the Tew Falls and Webster Falls. The spot can be fairly popular so reservations are required as of Sept. 23 for the fall colour season. To learn more or reserve your spot click here.

Mono Cliffs Provincial Park

Located a short 45 minute drive north of Brampton, Mono Cliffs Provincial Park in the town of Mono offers some stunning views and hiking trails, as well as bike paths, mountain biking trails and even horseback riding trails. In the winter months guests can also try out skiing and snowshoeing on hiking trails.
