Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

South Kettle Moraine State Forest is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year. The Scuppernong area is especially beautiful with many wide open spaces perfect for gorgeous vistas.

With autumn approaching it is time to think of great places to view fall colors. Much of northern Wisconsin is blanketed in coniferous forests, so even though the north is prettier and more remote, lack of deciduous forests makes for less spectacular fall foliage.

This is why South Kettle Moraine is a great place to view the fall color change. The Scuppernong nature trail takes hikers through hardwood forest with breaks in the trees at the Scuppernong springs and creek.

After checking out the Scuppernong area, drive south on the South Kettle Moraine scenic drive for more fall foliage viewing. Bald Bluff is a great spot to get out and climb the hill which overlooks the nearby moraines, forest, and farmland.
