If a country flag’s symbol is a maple leaf, then it’s going to have beautiful places to run in autumn. Here’s a list of our 20 favorite foliage runs in Canada, with a focus on areas you’re likely to be passing through a canopy of dazzling color, or routes with particularly special views. The list below is in organized from east to west. Note: due to Canada’s latitude, plan on peak foliage being as early as late September in prime areas.
The signature park in Halifax, only 3km from downtown, and wonderful for running. Good combination of waterfront trails and forested, interior paths.
