Fall Foliage Scenic Drives

Navigation Updates navigation systemsFall is once again here, and we all know what that means! (No, we are not talking about those carefree days back at home with a cup of hot steamy coffee.) There is no time of the year as beautiful as fall. The trees change to magical colors, and the air is chilly and refreshing.  Nature makes you fall in love with fall every year.  It’s perfect time to take a scenic road trip to see the incredible fall foliage. Here is our list of some of the best fall foliage scenic drives around the country.

Skyline Drive, Virginia

Skyline Drive is located in Shenandoah National Park and is often at the top of the list of best American mountain roads with fantastic views. Once you drive it during fall foliage, you will know why. We recommend driving the 105-mile long trip to see some of the most colorful trees.  Best viewing time for colors is about mid-October.

The Berkshires, Massachusetts

Another mountain destination you shouldn’t skip during fall foliage. The Berkshires is full of small roads, beaches, and charming towns. The area has several different scenic drives so you can make several different trips or even make a few shorter journeys on the same day. If you want to take a break from driving, we recommend boat or canoe trip to see the fall foliage from a little different angle.

Columbia River Highway, Oregon

Columbia River Highway is worth a visit at any time of the year, and it was the first scenic road given National Historic Landmark status. The 75-mile drive is full of things to see, but the most attractive sights are the massive waterfalls. The 620-foot Multnomah is a sight you shouldn’t skip while driving Columbia River Highway during fall. This waterfall and other parts of the scenic drive get extra colorful during fall foliage.

Enchanted Circle Drive, New Mexico

The fourth scenic drive we want to introduce for you has a little bit of everything and that makes it a great destination for a fall foliage trip. Enchanted Circle Drive offers you the opportunity to see small towns, lakes, mountains, serpentine roads and deep gorges bursting with the colors of fall. The 84-mile drive has low-speed limits, and some even call the roads dangerous because of the many gorges and long descents. Just be careful, and the sights will make your trip to see fall foliage extraordinary.

And now after getting some recommendations, it is just time to start planning your next weekend trip to see one or more of these scenic drives. Remember to pack a snack, some hot drinks, and warm clothes. Before leaving remember to update your car’s navigation system so you won’t get lost on your way to see the brilliant colors of fall. These routes are best during the day and remember the sun sets earlier in autumn so plan your drives carefully to maximize viewing.
