Lake Wilcox with the Subaru Impreza


Road Trip to Lake Wilcox in York Region

Does anyone else feel like we are in a never-ending winter? The snow and cold weather just won’t quit. So obviously, I had to pick one of the (hopefully) last coldest days of the year for a road trip.  BUT – since I knew I was going to be riding in a Subaru I had no concerns about the day. It’s crazy how reassuring it is to drive a car that is world renowned for its safety and handling. and I was a little lucky to have the sun on my side.


Lake Wilcox in winter – Subaru weather!

First things first, I have to give a big shout out to the team at Richmond Hill Subaru, they really know how to make a girl feel special. When they give you a brand new red Subaru Impreza and it’s all warmed up with a full tank you feel like a Queen.


I hopped in the car and headed out on my road trip to Lake Wilcox.  Lake Wilcox is an 11 min drive from Richmond Hill Subaru, so this might have been my quickest road trip yet. Yes, that’s right there is a lake right in the middle of Richmond Hill.  As soon as you drive up to the community surrounding Lake Wilcox you get an instant feeling of lake life. This was my first time visiting the lake and I am 100% going to be visiting in the summer (stay tuned). Side note, I am pretty sure the Subaru was clean when I picked it up, but you know it wouldn’t be a Subaru without some dirt on it.

I wouldn’t say that I was off-roading or anything but the road conditions were less than ideal however having the Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive on my side was all the comfort that I needed.  I also became a bit obsessed with the cars infotainment system. You know I am a sucker for back-up cameras but this system was NEXT LEVEL. It was like having a giant iPhone on my dash. It was so easy to use – hands down the best I think I have ever tried.

The best part about this (mini) road trip was once I was I finished exploring in the park I decided to try out a few side roads and I stumbled upon the most beautiful archway made out of trees. I was kicking my self, because I really wanted a photo in the archway. My mom came through and drove out to meet me – thanks mom!

I can’t wait to come back this summer!
