Spectacular fall colours await visitors at festival

Fall is in the air which means the Festival of Colours in Calabogie is in full swing. Chairlift rides along Dickson Mountain showcasing the breathtaking view of the picturesque Ottawa Valley, and a Skywalk interpretive hiking loop offers families and adventurers a unique outdoor experience.

Liz Murphy, Director of Marketing at the Calabogie Peaks Resort says the chairlift ride travels up  780ft to the top of Dickson Mountain and are offered on Saturday and Sundays through October 13 to October 21.

“There is a beautiful hiking trail at the top of the mountain called “Skywalk”, and another very popular place to see is called the Eagles Nest,” says Murphy.

According to Murphy, many people take the chairlift to the top of the mountain and then walk down one of the winter ski trails. Hiking maps of the site are available on the Calabogie Resort website.

The Festival of Colours Chairlift Ride is a great opportunity to take your family holiday photo with a background full of bountiful fall colours.

The ride is open to anyone ages three and up, with the last ride at 3:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased onsite.
