Have you been wearing red, orange, and yellow since the start of August? Is your Halloween costume already planned out? Are you holding a pumpkin spice latte right now? If so, I’ll bet you’re as ready for autumn as I am!

Fall is the perfect time to explore some of Wisconsin’s many hiking trails and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. Looking to take a scenic walk this season? Here are my top three picks for fall hikes in Wisconsin!

This gem feels like you’re in the middle of Wisconsin’s northwoods, even though it is under an hour’s drive up from Milwaukee! You’ll want to make sure to take the trail around Quarry Lake for the best view of the changing colors. Check out more pictures from my inaugural hike with Women Hiking Wisconsin here!

The Road to Harrington Beach State Park in the Fall

There is so much to see along this 20+ mile loop, from lake views to historic mansions. Start early to enjoy the crisp autumn air and take breaks to warm up at one of the many restaurants around the lake. Only have a short amount of time to spend on your trip?
