What is the best time to see peak fall foliage in Oklahoma?

Fall colors fill the state in late October and last until the beginning of November. Even though Oklahoma’s autumn colors don’t last long, they are positively bewitching. It’s worthwhile to plan your fall adventures early so you can catch the most vibrant sights. 

Where are the best places in Oklahoma to see fall foliage?

You don’t even have to work up a sweat in order to experience Oklahoma’s stunning nature. Just venture to the Talimena Scenic Byway. This 54-mile route weaves through the astonishing Ouachita National Forest. A sea of bright colors will greet you. Another popular autumn destination is Clayton Lake State Park. This natural wonderland is home to a vast forest and shimmering body of water. When the trees’ leaves change colors, they reflect into the pristine lake. This is one autumn adventure you won’t want to miss. 

What are the best Oklahoma hikes to take in the fall?

For some incredible autumn views, head over to Robbers Cave State Park. This natural area is home to several hiking trails that are suitable for all skill levels. Stroll up the Sans Bois Mountains and look at the fall colors from a higher vantage point. You can also go back in time with a walking history tour through the park. There’s another terrific hiking trail near Oologah Lake. This tranquil destination is located just north of Claremore, and it takes on a whole new life in the fall. You’ll love gaping at the oak and hickory trees surrounding the water. These views will make you fall in love with Oklahoma all over again.
