Catch The Last Of Ohio’s Fall Color On The 2-Mile Shawnee State Park Lookout Trail
Autumn is the most magical time of the year to take a hike in Ohio. (Be sure to check out this list of trails for spectacular fall color.) Even after much of the state’s foliage has peaked, the fall color at Shawnee State Park in southern Ohio lingers for another week or two. If you’re looking for a trail that still features plenty of yellows, reds and oranges, consider taking the Lookout Trail at Shawnee State Park in West Portsmouth, Ohio.
