The One Hikeable Lake Near Dallas – Fort Worth That’s Simply Breathtaking In The Fall

Located less than 100 miles east from Dallas, the City of Tyler boasts a beautiful landscape on the western edge of the Pineywoods. While the area is spectacular year-round, and is known for the internationally famous Tyler Rose Festival, it is especially breathtaking in the fall. Tyler State Park nearby encompasses a towering forest of 100-foot trees, which envelop a 64-acre, spring-fed lake.

It is here that the most picturesque autumn scenery can be found anywhere in Texas, as the sweetgums, dogwoods, oaks, and maples all show off their best and their brightest. With mid-November being the prime time for Mother Nature’s flashiest color display around this area, you should be planning your visit soon!
