Fall Colors

Chet's top fall pick!

While not known for its fall colors, anybody who travels the Texas backroads during October and November will discover that fall foliage is one of our best-kept secrets.  Whether cruising through the Piney Woods, the rolling Hill Country, or the West Texas Desert, travelers will find a world exploding with every shade of orange, red, and yellow.  

Fall Colors in East Texas

East Texas Route

Starting at Daingerfield State Park, hike the Rustling Leaves Nature Trail to see the fall foliage reflecting in Lake Daingerfield. Next, head to Lake Bob Sandlin State Park to see patches of color around the lake.

Take Highway 37 for a scenic drive through part of the Autumn Trails of Winnsboro, TX, and next you’re on to Tyler State Park for miles of trails surrounded by color. Your last stop is at Love’s Lookout in Jacksonville, which provides a bird’s eye view of the East Texas countryside.

Hill Country Route

On this trip, you’ll be starting your drive in the Lost Maples State Natural Area, one of the most beautiful spots to see fall color in the entire state. Take Ranch Road 1050 out of town for a scenic drive over the Sabinal River until you reach Garner State Park, where you’ll see beautiful red Bald cypress trees surrounding the Frio River. Your last stop is the Hill Country’s best kept secret, Magers River Crossing where the Frio crosses County Road 350 and the view of Old Baldy is incredible.
