Scenic Drive in the Kettle Moraine State Forest

There are many ways to enjoy the vibrant beauty of the Kettle Moraine State Forest in the fall, but taking a scenic drive through the area should be at the top of your list. Of course, depending on how much time you have to dedicate to this area, there are plenty of great hikes to take in the area, and we also have E-bikes that you can rent as you enjoy a crisp fall afternoon in the forest.

Though there is a Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive that traverses six different counties in Wisconsin over 115 beautiful miles, guests staying with us typically concentrate their time in the Northern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. The northern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest was the first part of this Wisconsin park and is the largest. Though there are plenty of biking and hiking trails and lakes to go boating on, we love simply driving through this forested paradise.

In total, the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine Forest encompasses 30,000 acres of rolling hills, forest, and prairies. The park’s unique geography as it exists today is a remnant of the last glacial ice age and how it moved through the area. The winding roads of the forest are beautiful, but the area’s highlights include the Henry S. Reuss Ice Age Interpretive Center, Parnell Tower, and the Ice Age National Trail.
