FALL COLORS

Fall Colors

Fall is a great time of year to visit Oconto County because it’s one of the best places to see fall foliage. Every autumn, nature paints the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest with gorgeous hues of gold, red and orange. Here is a list of the top 4 places to view fall colors in Oconto County! Spend a leisurely fall afternoon on a self-guided ATV ride through the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Don’t have an ATV? Rent one from Northern Power Sports to go on your fall colorseeking adventure. Climb all 132 steps to the top of the Mountain Fire Lookout Tower. The tower is one of the best places in Oconto County to view the Fall colors. The Mountain Fire Lookout Tower is one of 20 structures, originally built in the Oconto County region of the National Forest, and is listed on the National Historic Lookout Register. Hike up the newly developed trail to Butler Rock, in the Town of Brazeau, to reach the county’s highest point. This two mile sand trek is not for the faint-hearted, but the views are spectacular. Hike up to the Chute Pond Overlook area! A short, moderately steep trail (2/3 miles) leads to the top of a rock outcrop that features five vistas. Three of the vistas overlook Chute Pond, one looks over a Forest Service tree plantation, and one looks north along State Highway 32 with Bagley Rapids on the west and Green Lake on the east.
