With a slight chill in the air, Fall is nearing and some would say the best hiking of the year is about to unfold. In the Southeast United States, the tree tops turn a magnificent red, orange and yellow hues to welcome the cooler weather. Some years the glory may only last a few weeks, and some years the fall colors stick around for 2 to 3 months depending on your elevation. With so many amazing places to visit we want you to have plenty of time to plan your fall trips. Check out some of our tips and destinations to visit for some beautiful fall foliage near you.
Don’t worry you still have plenty of time to check off those items on your summer bucket list. For most of us that may include hiking up a high mountain, ditching the car, and exploring the wonders of backpacking. With plenty of time ahead, don’t forget about the natural wonders of your local national parks. Whether you have a week to explore or only a weekend, our national parks are a wonderous place to do what you love!
