Best Ways to View Fall Foliage

When to Visit

Brown County is well known for the magic Mother Nature brings to its trees, and fall road trips to Brown County have become an annual tradition for many. From chilly mid-September evenings that spark the desire for a campfire, to the undeniable energy only October can bring, to crisp November days that warm you up for early holiday shopping, a Chocolate Walk and our Hilly Half Marathon, Oh Hill Yes!… Fall in Brown County never disappoints.

For smaller crowds, consider a weekday trip. The longer you stay, the more you save. LEARN MORE

When Is Peak Color?

Leaves can change their color from as early as late September all the way through early November. Historically, the third week of October is noticed to be the busiest time to visit to see the leaves. However, over the past several years, the leaves have peaked a bit later in October and have kept good color lasting into early November.

Mother Nature has her magic under way in late September with hints of color spattered about. The color will intensify throughout October, then tone down through early November.

Visit our leaf cam often and check out the Fall Foliage Map and Nationwide Peak Leaf Forecast to make your own predictions on when the leaves will peak this year.

🍂Mid October 🍂

I find myself alone in the woods on a crisp autumn day. A breeze rustles the dry leaves on the forest floor, and birds chirp high in the branches of the oak trees. For a brief moment I experience life without distractions. Life is full of distractions. We carry around computers in our pockets full of applications designed to keep us distracted. It is so easy to forget our place in this world, and our place in nature. We rely on the planet to provide us with food, water, and an environment suitable for us to survive. Yet we treat the planet so poorly in return. I believe we are a society in need of a reconnection with nature. It would humble us. We would be kinder

Our top 5 favorite spices for fall cooking...
Cinnamon - we carry a variety of cinnamon powders for all types of dishes. Order online: http://ow.ly/NLv550BWoU3

Nutmeg - Closely related to Mace, Nutmeg has a piney, slightly sweet flavor, spicy with a hint of clove. Compliments a variety of meat, including chicken, turkey and beef. Also works well with root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, turnips and beets. In addition to potatoes dishes and desserts. Order online: https://nashvillespicecompany.com/products/nutmeg-ground?_pos=1&_sid=1796a4aea&_ss=r

Cloves - The flavor of cloves is bitter, hot, rich and a little sultry with hints of fruitiness while the aroma is strong with undertones of camphor and pepper.
Whole cloves are most commonly used to stud ham or pork roast while ground cloves are most often found in cakes, custards, pies and liqueurs. Order online: https://nashvillespicecompany.com/products/cloves-whole?_pos=1&_sid=f829c4a8a&_ss=r

Allspice - our Allspice Jamaican Ground has a sweet, warm flavor with floral undertones. Great in soups, stews, curries and barbeques. Works well in combination with mustards, cloves, garlic, coriander, rosemary, and chili powder. Order online: https://nashvillespicecompany.com/products/allspice-jamaican-ground?_pos=2&_sid=843310c47&_ss=r

Ginger - works especially well with root vegetables such as turnips, beets and carrots. But is also adds depth to squash, pumpkin and sweet potatoes. Not just for meat and vegetable based dishes. Ginger can add flavor to baked goods and desserts. Especially those with the strong flavor of molasses. Order online: https://nashvillespicecompany.com/products/ginger-ground?_pos=1&_sid=cc0a82b6a&_ss=r
