Fall Foliage in Texas State Parks
Lovely Lone Star Autumn
Each year, Texas State Parks offer some of the best places to view spectacular Texas fall foliage. Across the state, you can see autumn’s annual display of dazzling color - from the legendary Bigtooth maple trees at Lost Maples State Natural Area in the Hill Country, to the shades of red and gold of sweetgum and oak amidst the famous Pineywoods of East Texas at Daingerfield, Lake Bob Sandlin, and Cooper Lake State Parks. An even better secret are the lofty cottonwoods, which turn a brilliant yellow during fall at Caprock Canyons and Palo Duro Canyon State Parks in the Panhandle and Davis Mountains State Park in far West Texas.
Numerous other parks also have great fall views, and in Texas, autumn represents some of the best weather of the year. So no matter where you are in Texas, some beautiful scenery awaits in a state park near you.
