It’s only a short period of time that the hills, bluffs, and valleys of Wisconsin are ablaze in autumn color. During this brief time of year, Trempealeau County’s beautiful landscape provides a wonderful opportunity for activities like hiking, bicycling, canoeing, motorcycling, classic car cruising, and photography. For 2017, some experts predict that the fall color change may happen slightly earlier than usual.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s Fall Color Report, an estimated 30% of trees in Trempealeau County have already changed color. The peak color week is anticipated to be the third week of October, but be prepared for it to sneak up fast.
To experience the autumn colors, consider planning an outdoor outing that will provide an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views that the season offers in Trempealeau County. It could be something as simple as a car ride through the countryside, or you could create a series of afternoon activities to do with friends and family- such as hiking at one of the parks in the County, stopping by one of our orchards, and then going to eat at a unique locally owned dining establishment.
The autumn color season doesn’t last long, so follow this advice from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism: “See fall leaves, before fall leaves.”
