Looking for the best place to see the changing colours of Fall?  Enjoy the North Hastings Scenic Routes. 

When the mercury drops and the air is crisp, say hello to sweaters, pumpkin pie and -- of course -- foliage. There's still plenty of time to plan a leaf-peeping trip.  North Hastings Scenic Autumn Drives offers thirteen unique and interconnected routes, each with its own personality and charm. Posted highway signs direct visitors, and help you stay on track. 

Whether you want to hit the open road to find yourself or lose yourself along the way, keep in mind that a road trip is all about you. You decide when to start and stop, you decide where to eat and sleep, and you decide what is worth a second glance. Discover all 13 routes here:
