Favorite Midwest Parks for Fall Color
Iowa: Pikes Peak State Park
Mississippi and Wisconsin river views unfold from trails in Pikes Peak State Park (65 miles northwest of Dubuque). Stand on a 500-foot bluff overlooking the confluence of the rivers, walk past spring-fed streams and waterfalls, or wander through large wooded tracts cloaked in fall colors of red and gold. The park borders the small town of McGregor (population: 876), a onetime steamboat port.
