Rouge Park off Twyn Rivers Drive (Scarborough)

Real gem of a road

During the fall, Twyn Rivers is a real gem of a road in the midst of civilization. Breathtaking colourful leaves, white cliffs, a crossroad passing over two small bridges… and not a single house in sight! The drive on Twyn Rivers Drive leads to a large parking lot. From there, we took a trail along the river and crossed a bridge. We then took the trail off the road. It eventually started to run up a steep hill to our right. We first explored the right-hand side of the fork we found up the hill. The path was really pretty, the black trunks contrasting with a colourful patch of trees on a hill in the far background. We then came back at the start of the fork to explore the left-hand side, which offered quite an interesting stroll. We took the first downhill trail to our right, aiming at the river. A strange vision of dark trees with peeling bark and tortuous branches among standing dead trunks awaited us. Soon after, following the sound of the river, we reached a postcard landscape of river and fall colours, complete with 50-cm trout jumping against the current! It took us approximately an hour to walk the whole loop back to the asphalt road and to the parking lot.
