Fall in Wisconsin is breathtaking. As you plan your upcoming rides and hikes, you can refer to this guide from Travel Wisconsin to chase colors and soak up the beautiful change of seasons!

Fall Tip from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

Devil’s Lake State Park provides incredible views from the top of the East and West bluffs and out across the lake, but have you been inside those views to experience fall colors from the bottom up? This fall, challenge yourself and get off the beaten path to experience state parks from inside the trail, and not just the scenic vista overlook!

Try getting on the Johnson Moraine, Upland or Ice Age trails at Devil’s Lake. You can still make the steep hike to the top of the East Bluff but while you’re on your way there, check out the colors beneath the tree canopy and soak in the quiet of Wisconsin’s most popular state park.

Find less-congested parking access areas and entrance points along County Highway DL and Highway 113, or grab your bike and hit the bike trails along the east side of the park. Check out the Devil’s Lake map here.
