Favorite Midwest Parks for Fall Color
Indiana: Brown County State Park
The peaceful vistas alone warrant a day trip to Indiana's largest state park (60 miles south of Indianapolis), but resort-style extras make Brown County State Park a full-fledged destination. The great on-site stable offers horseback trips and pony rides, and the restaurant-lodge includes a new indoor water park. More than 18 miles of hiking and mountain bike trails spread over the area, winding around hills and beside streams. Fall scenery also unfolds from nearly 20 miles of tree-lined roads.
