Fall Colours On The Burnt And Irondale Rivers

This is part of our partnership with Maryboro Lodge The Fenelon Falls Museum and was written and photographed by Glenn Walker.

KAWARTHA LAKES-Descending from Gooderham in the East and Haliburton in the North, the Burnt River and its tributaries make a wonderful route for canoeing adventures.

As they wind their way through the forests, the branches of this watershed pass many cottages, waterfront homes and few parks.

Along the way, there are strikingly beautiful waterfalls and historic sites. In the late nineteenth century, these rivers came alive each spring as the river drivers floated their logs past the many cataracts along the way.

After the last drives passed in the early twentieth century, they became the waterway of recreation that is much loved to this day.
