Leaf Watching Trips

Ozark Foliage

Fall is fantastic. There’s no denying it. It’s hard to think of something bad that comes with fall. You don’t really hear complaints like, “The weather is too perfect” or, “That tree has too many colors”. Fall is the ideal time of year to get back outside and do the things you love to do! Make sure that you take advantage of the lovely weather and see the Ozarks do its color change.

It seems like the trees change color overnight in Arkansas. The week starts and there’s nothing but green, the next day you see a little patch of gold, and by the end of the week you’re staring at an sea of oranges, reds, and yellows. With that being said, don’t put off taking a trip outdoors. You start to think, “There’s always next weekend” and the next thing you know, all the leaves are on the ground and fall will have already fell.

The Ozarks are beautiful year-round, but they’re truly amazing in the fall season. Typically you can enjoy the fall colors for a few weeks, but there’s a usually a 2 week window when the trees are just unreal. If you’ve never trekked around Arkansas in autumn be sure to start this year.

There are all kinds of different ways you can enjoy fall foliage. Hiking can get you up close and personal to one of the greatest shows on earth. The Ozark Trail alone boasts over 200 miles of beautiful hiking. Climbing is another way to get a closer look at the changing leaves. You can sit beneath the leaves in a prime and picturesque bouldering spot of get above the limbs on a sport route for an incredible view. Pretty much anything outdoors like biking, camping, fishing, trail running, or whatever is a good way to observe the leaves. Just do whatever it is you already do in the beauty of a temporary scenery change.

While we at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters highly recommend it, you don’t have to get amongst the leaves to observe them. Part of fall’s beauty is that you don’t necessarily have to be into the outdoors to enjoy that beauty. You can take an afternoon drive on Highway 7 or along the Pig Trail or down some back country roads and enjoy the passing colors.
