Hiking in Berea during the fall provides an opportunity for a new experience and great scenery. Here are three reasons why you should pack up your gear this fall and head out on a trail: 1) Fall colors provide incredible views, 2) The weather is perfect- not too hot or cold so you can enjoy all day outside, 3) There are several things to do at night to round off your day of enjoyment.
1) Fall colors provide incredible views
Fall is in the air. The leaves will be slowly turning orange, red, yellow, and brown. Some will fall to the ground while others will fight to stay on their branches for just a little bit longer. Nature’s fall show is always stunning!
The colors in the Berea area are often incredible when they change. Depending on the weather, the colors may be vibrant or subtle, but this year we have hit our rainfall goals fairly well, so the chances are leaning to vibrant. Fall is a great time of year to hike because many native trees put on their show during this time. And even if the trees aren’t changing color yet, there are still some pretty views to look at. After all, hiking is still fun even if there aren’t any colorful leaves on the trees.
2) The weather is perfect- not too hot or cold so you can enjoy all day outside.
Fall hiking conditions are their absolute best! The temperature is just right, not too hot and not too cold. This makes it the perfect weather for a hike in the great outdoors. Plus, you won’t have to worry about constantly wiping sweat off of your brow or constantly bundling up when it’s freezing. The climate is just right so you can enjoy your hike all day. On top of all that, with the fall foliage at its peak, you will never see a more gorgeous sight.
3) There are several things to do at night to round off your day of enjoyment.
Forget about the drive home after a day of hiking. Not only will you have plenty to look at during your hike, but there are things to do when you get back to town too. Live Music performances, shopping, and food are available this fall at the Spoonbread Festival. The Spotlight Playhouse has performances every weekend this fall including The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Descendants: The Musical, Bayou, and Harvey. From the upscale Boone Tavern to the casual Dinner Bell, great food is always in supply in Berea.
Enjoy the great outdoors this autumn! No matter where you live, there are some pretty views just waiting to be seen, but I encourage you to take the trip to Berea for its ample supply of trails and fun. So grab some friends or family members, pack up your gear, and get outside before winter starts to creep in. You won’t regret it. And remember, don’t forget the camera!
