This Is The Most Scenic Drive In All Of Wisconsin For Viewing Fall Foliage
There aren’t a lot of better places to be in fall than Wisconsin. With all our amazing forests, there’s just a ton of foliage and colors to see pretty much everywhere you go. You’ll find tons of leaf peepers treking their way to Door County or along the Great River Road, but most of those folks are missing out on the very best, most scenic and beautiful drive to see fall foliage in Wisconsin.
The Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive is a 115-mile long path through 50,000 acres of the southern and northern units of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. You’ll pass through small towns, get up close to a ton of interesting terrain formed by the Wisconsin glaciation and see an amazing array of color thanks to the miles and miles of oak, maple and aspen trees. You’ll go right by one of the most popular fall color spots in Holy Hill and have the opportunity to climb a couple of observation towers to get a birds’ eye view of all the beauty. Basically, it’s the perfect autumn drive.
