The Best Spots For Leaf Peeping in Fayetteville, Arkansas

If all the pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations haven't gotten you in the mood for the fall season, these gorgeous autumn views close to apartments near University of Arkansas just might do the trick. In years past, late October has been the prime time to see changing colors in Northwest Arkansas. Intrigued? Head to these spots for scenic views.

Kessler Mountain Trails

If you're looking for something really close to home, check out the seven miles of trails that Kessler Mountain offers. Located less than 20 minutes from our student apartments near Fayetteville, AR, Kessler Mountain Park is a sprawling 376 acres of land waiting to be explored. Whether you're mountain biking, hiking, or just enjoying the views, you'll find old-growth forests and rocky woodlands to indulge your fall appetite. 

Yellow Rock Trail

At Devil's Den State Park about 30 miles from The Academy at Frisco, you'll find a moderately difficult 2.7-mile hiking trail featuring a gorgeous river, unique rock formations and a scenic bluff overlook at the peak of your journey. The bluff overlooks Lee Creek Valley and offers a panoramic view of the colorful leaves below. Yellow Rock trail is heavily trafficked due to its beauty so consider visiting this trail on a weekday to avoid crowds. 

Pig Trail Scenic Byway

Not a huge hiker? No problem! A little less than an hour from our apartments near University of Arkansas, you can view the fall foliage from the comfort of your car. This 19-mile stretch of AR 23 meanders through the Ozark National Forest providing expansive overlooks and stunning tree tunnels. The Pig Trail is nicknamed for all the Razorback fans who travel the route for football games and because the winding road resembles a hog's curly tail. Named the best motorcycling spot in the country, this destination will not disappoint.
