Oklahoma in the fall – Autumn colours

Take a peep at Oklahoma’s autumn colours

Oklahoma might not be the first state that comes to mind when it comes to fabulous autumn colours but each year the state is set ablaze by autumn’s golden hues. And alongside the vibrant colours and glorious autumn foliage are a host of family-friendly festivals.

Visitors can enjoy a scenic drive through one of the prime foliage areas, or hike through an outdoor recreational area, watching as the autumn leaves seem to change colours before their eyes.

Key routes for leaf peeping include the Talimena National Scenic Byway, in south-eastern Oklahoma, where you can drive across the tops of ancient mountains and marvel at the breathtaking vistas as you overlook miles of rolling hills set ablaze with spicy autumnal colours. Visitors can discover the unique history behind the mysterious Viking carvings at Heavener Runestone Park or enjoy a hike through the golden foliage and camp at Talimena State Park or nearby Lake Wister State Park.

Another popular spot in autumn is Arbuckle Lake and Chickasaw National Recreation Area, where nature’s magnificent colours reflect on the lake’s surface and line the rippling creeks. Typically, foliage can be viewed at its peak from the last week of October through the first week of November.
