Larch trees are the only needled tree to shed needles in the fall. They usually change to a golden yellow colour in mid-September, and loose their needles in late October. The trees at higher elevations turn first. Visitors come from all over the world to marvel at the unique and spectacular changing colours of the Larch trees.
While bears are starting to go back into hibernation for the winter, fall is one of the most active times of the year for Moose. Take an evening tour with Canadian Rockies Adventures along Spray Lakes Road in search of these elusive and majestic animals.
When it starts to get colder, many Canmorites turn to the indoor climbing facilities at Elevation Place. With 1,000 square meters of climbing surface and 1,500 square feet of bouldering, Elevation Place is a the perfect location to challenge yourself this fall.
The Legacy Trail bike path between Banff & Canmore stays open until mid-October. The 22km paved trail is a great way to get out and see the leaves change colour and offers spectacular panoramic mountain views.
Discover natural alpine landscapes and high mountain vistas on an alpine heli-hike, or just sit back and enjoy the soaring mountain ranges from an eagle’s eye view. You will be astounded by incredible views of alpine lakes, glaciers and waterfalls.
Join Canmore Cave Tours rain or shine for a Natural History tour into Rat’s Nest Cave: a wild, undeveloped cave under Grotto Mountain. Tour the 4km cave created by the meltwaters of ancient glaciers.
Visit Trail Sports at the Canmore Nordic Centre to rent a Disc and try out the beautiful forested Disc Golf Course. Watch the leaves change as you try your hand at this growing sport on one of the best and most challenging courses.
Trying to stay warm on a cool weekend in the mountains? Visit the Grizzly Paw Brewery for a tour of their new state-of the art facility. Enjoy a frosty beverage as you learn about the beer-making process. Delicious hand-crafted sodas as well make it a great family-friendly activity.
Just down the road is the Kananaskis Mountain Festival. Until October 26th you can take part in wine tastings, women’s wellness weekends, cooking courses and more. For information, check out: www.mountainfestival.ca
