Practically everyone would agree that one of the greatest things about the fall season is watching all of the leaves change to gorgeous, vibrant colors.

Experience the Breathtaking Fall Foliage in Sheboygan this Season | Inn on Hillwind

While your visit will certainly be filled with plenty of fall scenery around every corner, if you are interested in taking it all in on a grander scale, we would highly recommend that you make time to check out the Northern Unit of Kettle Moraine State Forest. This 29,268-acre forest is home to some of the most gorgeous views in the state. Regardless of whether you choose to hike or bike through the trails, you’ll be greeted by breathtaking sights at every turn. Plus, as the red and yellow colors of the wooded hills dance across the calm lakes dotted across the forest, you’ll feel like you’re getting double the beauty.

If you choose to make a day out of it, be sure to pack a picnic lunch and take your romantic hike through the State Forest to the next level in the Greenbush Recreational Area. You can even look into renting a canoe, paddleboat or kayak to get out on the water near Mauthe Lake and surround yourself completely by vibrant trees at all angles. Trust us when we tell you that there is no better sight!

Located at the beginning of the Kettle Moraine Northern Unit, the Greenbush Recreational Area also allows for a quick ten minute drive from our Inn at N4922 Hillwind Road in Plymouth, WI. We can’t think of a better daytime activity to partake in during your weekend trip. But don’t take our word for it; experience Sheboygan’s fall oasis today!
