Nature beckons in the Land O’Lakes with a wide range of camping experiences – from spacious RV-friendly sites, to more remote areas that are only accessible by water. Take in the unspoiled natural scenery and give bird watching a try. See if you can spot a few of the 356 species that call the Land O’Lakes home.

Discover Fall by Pedal Power

Revel in authentic country landscapes by cycling Land O Lakes. Watch the colours change before you as you pedal through field, forest and alongside the water, while exploring the small towns and more urban areas along the way.

The K&P Trail is a 63-km dedicated off road trail that makes for perfect fall cycling, hiking and even equestrian activities. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the gravel pathway that is suitable for bikes designed for light off road conditions. It runs from north of Kingston to Tichborne and actually connects to the existing Catarqaui Trail at Harrowsmith.

Watch as nature reveals itself on the beautiful Cataraqui Trail – cycling is encouraged on this 103 km trail that stretched from Smiths Falls to Stratcona. Cyclists and hikers are welcome to explore wilderness, lakes, wetland, fields and more as the cooler weather settles in and the bugs become less of a nuisance.  Unique vantage points along the Cataraqui Trail make for unforgettable fall foliage views.

Lennox and Addington has also put together cycling route trails which encompass the county and invite further exploration of the back roads that showcase authentic Eastern Ontario landscapes.

Want to explore more? Hop on your bike and join the Discover L&A Ride event, taking place Sept. 22, 2018 starting at Mackinnon Brothers Brewing Company. The 58-km ride showcases the water’s edge, country roads and unique rest stops at historic sites, parks and wineries.

Discover Why Wolfe Island is A-maze-ing in The Fall

Corn turns into the newest family-friendly adventure on Wolfe Island every fall, as a legendary maze is carved out of an entire field corn. The creative design at the Corn Maze on Wolfe Island in Land O Lakes features two mazes this year, as well as mid-point refreshments! Taking the ferry from Kingston the island adds to the fun of a day out in fall. After you find you way out of the maze, don’t forget to visit the animals on the farm.

Want to make the experience even more intriguing? Ask about reserving a spot in a flashlight night event. Imagine trying to navigate the maze after the sun goes down!
