Where to Enjoy Beautiful Fall Colors in Wisconsin

If you decide to venture beyond the privacy of our cabin in Wisconsin, a beautiful explosion of fall colors in Wisconsin will be waiting for you. With the green of the Northwoods gradually changing to the vibrant red, orange, and yellows of the season, Wisconsin has earned itself a solid reputation as a fall color powerhouse. It’s a fantastic season to enjoy getaways in Wisconsin, especially in a place as ruggedly beautiful as Wausau. 

There are, of course, plenty of ways to enjoy the fall colors in Wisconsin. The peak for Wausau’s fall colors generally comes around mid-October, but you’ll start to see the gradual transition in color in September, with hints of color often sticking around through to the end of October. There are plenty of wonderful things to do in Wausau each fall, and we’ve included a few of our favorites below. 

  1. If you want to enjoy the fall colors in Wisconsin, hiking is the best way to do it. Luckily, there are plenty of great (colorful) hikes in the Wausau area, including The Big Eau Pleine Park or the Dells of the Eau Claire County Park, both exceptionally beautiful during fall. Another great place is the Nine-Mile Country Forest Recreation Area.
  2. One of the best views in Wausau – especially in the fall – is at the top of the Granite Peak Ski Area. In the fall, they offer scenic chairlift rides to the top for those picture-perfect views. 
  3. At the top of Granite Peak Ski Area, take the opportunity to meander around Rib Mountain State Park. There’s a great observation tower here, offering even more impressive views of the fall colors in Wisconsin. 
  4. Biking is also a great way to see Wisconsin in the fall. Bring or rent a bike, and enjoy the miles of trails along the Mountain-Bay State Trail.
  5. Spend an afternoon together driving through beautiful runners of fall foliage. The area has plenty of great scenic drives, including a stretch along Highway 107 between Merrill and Tomahawk. The trip is approximately 30 miles long and meanders alongside the Wisconsin River, allowing for breathtaking views as you go.
  6. Enjoy some fall birdwatching in the Wausau area. Great places to visit include the Bitzke Waterfowl Refuge, the Bern Wetland, or the George W. Mead Wildlife Area.

It won’t take long to fall in love with the natural beauty of Wausau, even if you never leave our beautiful cabin in Wisconsin. Your romantic getaways in Wisconsin are waiting. Book our cabin today!
