Are you looking for a scenic spot for foliage in Alabama that’s a little less crowded? Northeast and east-central Alabama’s Appalachian Mountains and foothills regions get the most love for fall foliage. However, I am planning to drive to both corners of the state for my fall color fix. Here’s why: Colbert Ferry Park along the Alabama section of the Natchez Trace Parkway.
The Natchez Trace Parkway stretches 444 miles from Tennessee to southern Mississippi and is an excellent route for more extensive road-tripping. If you choose to make the journey, be sure to use our road trip essentials packing list before you go.
