Some of the best fall color in Wisconsin surrounds Wausau and the Stewart Inn. Peak color, especially for red and orange hues, usually occurs the last week in September through the first week in October. Two of the best places for hiking, viewing and photograpy are Rib Mountain State Park and Dells of the Eau Claire County Park.
Granite Peak Ski Area on Rib Mountain offers rides on the Comet lift September 26-27 and October 3-4 from 11am to 4pm each day. At Dells of the Eau Claire, the densley wooded trails follow the Eau Claire River. On a sunny day, the south bank will be lined with photographers capturing the reflected muted colors in the water along with blazing trees on the high north bank.
