Each year from mid-September to November, the Ozarks change from bursting branches of green to the rich fall colors of red, orange, and yellow.

With the leaves turning warm colors and the temperatures dropping, fall is a season for change. Branson is a top choice for a change in scenery where the colors of autumn are in full view!

Branson Area Scenic Overlooks

It’s the perfect season to catch a glimpse of the changing colors of the Ozarks from afar at the 165 Scenic Overlook. This scenic overlook is part of a beautiful drive that runs about 22 miles and includes stretches of Route 265. On the drive, Table Rock Lake and the Table Rock Lake Dam are visible.

Secondly, located inside the Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area, a scenic overlook that’s less than a half-mile from the parking lot leads to a 40-foot-tall viewing tower atop a formation known as Dewey Bald, where views of the White River hills await. From either view, the rolling vista of the Ozarks are full of various shades of fall colors that will warm the heart.

Branson Trails

Get up-close and personal by taking a stroll on one of many area nature trails. Taking a self-guided tour gives one the ability to set a comfortable pace while taking in the fall foliage. At the Lakeside Wilderness Hiking Trail visitors can leisurely walk the trails or hike through the Ozark Mountain terrain. This trail has great viewing areas that showcase the rolling hills and views of Lake Taneycomo. With a picnic area available, hikers can stay for a couple of hours or until the sun sets.

Explore Branson’s Fall Foliage

Branson has a variety of ways to see the beautiful fall colors that cover the area. With a boat, visitors can experience the changing colors around Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo. Other favorites include plane, helicopter and train tours, as well as cruises on one of our spectacular lakes.

While leaves burst into full color and the landscape undergoes its annual transformation, Branson celebrates the new season with numerous craft and music festivals, outdoor sporting activities and patriotic events.
