One of the best ways to appreciate the changing seasons is by experiencing Oklahoma’s scenery. We guarantee that you will want to break out the apple cider and cozy sweaters once you see all the autumnal beauty that Oklahoma has to offer.
The Talimena National Scenic Byway is one of the state’s best bets for amazing vistas of eastern Oklahoma’s landscape – rolling hills that are ablaze with fall foliage every year. This winding 54-mile drive follows along the crest of the Rich Mountain and Winding Stair Mountain in the Ouachita (pronounced Wash-i-tah) National Forest. The drive takes a little more than an hour to complete, but there are plenty of attractions along the route that invite you to take it slow, including hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking trails.
