Fall is a beautiful time of year, which is why many people claim that it is their favorite. What’s not to love about the vibrantly colored leaves, wonderful smells, and spooky surprises? According to the Fall Foliage Map on SmokyMountains.com, Missouri should reach its peak autumn coloring between October 22nd and November 5th. This means it is time to take a Missouri road trip to see all the colors for yourself.
Only In Your State was kind enough to create a dream fall foliage tour that travels through some of the most scenic areas in Missouri. Here are some of the highlights of that trip.
- Castlewood State Park. Start your travels just south of St. Louis at this beautiful park with plenty of trails and expansive views.
- Ozark Scenic Riverways. Walk along the water for some spectacular views of the changing leaves. Try the Chubb Hollow Trail for the best views.
- Mark Twain National Forest. You can’t go on a nature adventure through Missouri without a visit to the state’s only national forest. Walk along the miles of trails and even spend a night or two camping out.
