Kettle Moraine State Forest: Many Ways to Enjoy the Beauty of Fall Foliage

While there is, of course, plenty to do and see all year long in Sheboygan, we have to say that the fall season is particularly special throughout this area. With a crisp chill in the air and all of the colorful foliage at the height of its beauty, now is the most ideal time to begin planning your next fall vacation in Wisconsin.

The change of season, which normally starts the first of October and continues throughout the entire month, is showcased beautifully on the Northern Unit of Kettle Moraine State Forest. That being said, if you are the type of person who craves being active, you’ll find a number of fun activities and events for everyone in the family right here. From fishing and hunting, to ATV riding and more, there is a seemingly endless list of adventurous ways to celebrate the fall season in this state park.

For those most interested in simply taking in seasonal foliage, we would highly recommend taking a hiking trip along the trails of Kettle Moraine’s Greenbush recreation area, which offers over 13 miles of hiking fun and gorgeous scenery. However, if you’re looking for more of a challenge, consider another option – the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, which runs for long yet gorgeous 31 miles. Since there is so much to do and see in Kettle Moraine, you and your family can spend a weekend in the area and visit a different portion of the park each day.

An added bonus to all of this is the fact that the Inn on Hillwind is conveniently located only eight miles from the beautiful Greenbush Recreation area. Whether walking, biking or ATVing along the park’s trails, guests are never too far from being able to enjoy nature and revel in the changes of color that a Wisconsin fall season has to offer.

Treat yourself and your family to a weekend of fun, relaxation and celebration by visiting the Inn on Hillwind and Kettle Moraine State Forest’s Northern Unit this upcoming month. When you stay with us, you’re just minutes away from the splendor of fall!
