Leaving Toronto, you’d hardly know that fall is in full swing. Sure, the air is a bit chilled, but the leaves are still green and boldly clinging to their trees. But as I drove north up Highway 11, the changes in the season were all around us, and what started as another ride up this well-worn highway became as vivid and enthralling as any Hollywood movie.
Our crew of three; myself, Mike Jacobs, our photographer Virgil Knapp, and our videographer, Ryan Grani, were all headed up from The Big Smoke (aka Toronto) to the picturesque little town of Mattawa for a three-day adventure with the YouTube ATV All-Stars to ride some of the best off-road trails in the province, the Voyageur Multi-Use Trail System (VMUTS), with the fall colours at their apex. And what we saw blew our minds.
