Enjoying a Fall Hike at Parrott’s Bay Conservation Area


Red Bush

Autumn is my favourite time of year to hike a trail. The air is crisp, the views are spectacular, and if you’re lucky you could see an abundance of wildlife along the way.

I recently had a chance to take a stroll along the trail at Parrott’s Bay Conservation Area near Amherstview in Loyalist Township. Managed by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority, it’s an amazing 117 hectare (289 acre) property with a variety of wooded areas, wetlands, and beautiful waterfront views.

Parrott’s Bay is a great place to get out and enjoy the season. Below are some photographs from my visit. We’d love to see your photos too. Tag us on Facebook or Instagram with #unspoiledLA. Enjoy your hike!

The leaves are showing a lot of yellow so far this year. This is one of the few with a reddish colouring.

These brilliantly red berries almost glow in contrast to its lightly coloured surroundings.

This little chipmunk was on a mission to fill its cheeks with as many leaves as possible. Why? I don’t know.
