Texas Leaf Peeping

September 28, 2018 Lara Gwyn

Texas is known for a lot of things, but fall leaves aren’t one of them. However, being the amazing state that we are, we actually DO have several opportunities to bask in the beauty of fall right here at home. Find the best places to go to enjoy fall colors in Texas. 

Garner State Park
To the west of San Antonio you’ll discover trees adorned in leaves of every brilliant fall color. Cypress and oak trees flank the Frio River, providing picture perfect viewing. 

Lost Maples State Natural Area
Hike, fish, camp and spend as much time as you want enjoying what has become Texas’s most popular location for enjoying the splendor of autumn. Uvalde bigtooth maples are aflame with red and golden leaves, offering a spectacular show at this park northwest of San Antonio.

Guadalupe River State Park
Traditionally known for being a popular swimming hole, this state park north of San Antonio is ideal for getting a gander at a wide variety of fall leaves. Sycamores, sumacs, bald cypress, and cottonwoods provide dazzling displays of red, orange, and yellow leaves.

Daingerfield State Park 
Situated in the piney woods of northeast Texas, this park is glowing with the burning embers of fall color. Oak, maple, and sweetgum trees show off their exquisite beauty, bejeweled in flaming reds and glowing golds.

Caddo Lake State Park
The otherworldly bald cypress trees rising above the water create a unique, almost mystical atmosphere that every Texan should experience. Add the fiery colors of fall, and visitors are in for an extraordinary treat.

Tyler State Park
You’ll be greeted with the deepest crimsons and the most vivid golds, decorating forests of dogwood, oak, sweetgum, and maple trees. The lake within the park reflects the colors, intensifying the impact.

Sabine National Forest & Angelina National Forest
East Texas is home to all four of Texas’s national forests. Autumn visitors will enjoy a leisurely afternoon driving between these two forests, home to breathtaking sweetgum and maple trees radiant with color. Take highway 103, and enjoy the show!
