The fall colours are well under way in our region and there’s no shortage of places to view them. One of the prime locations is Owl’s Head. Gather the family. Pull on your hiking boots. Jump on a chairlift. And pack a picnic! From the summit, you’ll enjoy spectacular views. At the mountain, you can also enjoy a number of seasonal activities.
