A Colourful Paddle on Deerock Lake

October 9, 2019

Since I started kayaking last year I've had a few people mention to me how great a spot Deerock Lake is to paddle. I've had it on my list of places to visit and I finally made the trip on a sunny morning in early-October.

They weren't exaggerating. Deerock Lake Conservation Area may be the absolute most beautiful place I've ever been to.

Route Itineraries for a Perfect Colour Tour

Autumn is my favourite season. The humidity of the summer is mostly gone, the nights are cool, and the days are still warm enough to keep the heavy jacket in the back of the closet.

With the exception of raking the lawn - and raking again, and again - there's nothing not to like about this time of year. Despite the work that goes along with keeping the yard in order, seeing the colours that Mother Nature unveils every fall is well worth it.

The views from the water this time of year are amazing. The brilliant colours of fall reflecting off still lakes and rivers are spectacular, and the cool autumn air makes the experience all the more enjoyable.

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.

The autumn leaves are really starting to pop right now in Lennox & Addington so now is the perfect time to plan a tour of our roads. Last fall we went for a scenic drive along some of the quiet country roads in the Township of Stone Mills. As you'll see below, the views were spectacular!

We're not quite at this level of colour just yet, but in the next few weeks you can expect a view as amazing as this!

Autumn is Prime Cycling Season

When the calendar turns to September, prime cycling season arrives here in South Eastern Ontario. The days are usually a bit cooler and there is less humidity than earlier in the summer, making conditions just right to hop on your bike and enjoy a ride.

Lennox & Addington offers some of the best road cycling routes in the province. Our County roads are in terrific shape, and many are equipped with extended paved shoulders that provide added safety to riders.

If you enjoy the outdoors, Lennox & Addington is a great place to be. There are many trails to hike or ride, and nearly countless lakes and rivers to explore. 

Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparents' cottage on Beaver Lake. Most every day I could be found either in my Pop's old fishing boat, or paddling along the shoreline in a canoe. 

Fast forward twenty-plus years and, despite my childhood love of being out on the water, I rarely had the opportunity to do so. Life is busy and time flies.
