Encompassing 125,000 acres, the BSFNRA is located in some of the most rugged territory on the Cumberland Plateau, in the Eastern portion of the state. Big South Fork of the Cumberland River passes through 90 miles of scenic gorges and sandstone bluffs. The wildflowers and fall foliage of this terrain make for colorful viewing. Be sure to hop aboard the The Big South Fork Open Air Scenic Railway, which makes runs during October foliage season. Peak Viewing: (Eastern) Oct. 5-21; (Western) Oct. 12-28.
Wisconsin’s farmlands, lakes, streams and rivers, combined with an abundance of oak, maple and hickory trees, make it a popular destination for viewing fall leaves. For over a century, leaf peepers have been flocking to the Lake Geneva area in Autumn. A trio of Wisconsin quiet rustic roads (Routes 11, 12 and 36) make for nearly 20 miles of scenic fall driving. Also consider booking one of the foliage cruises on the Lake for a truly colorful experience. Peak Viewing: October 5 – 14
