I hope you all had enjoyed the fall season and some of you still enjoying the season. This year’s weather was quite unpredictable for us Wisconsinites because the temperature in the 60s and 70s in October month sounds like too good to be true. But it happened and the weather exceeds the expectation and we enjoyed fall a little longer. Enjoying warm weather was fun, but it comes with few side effects. These year weather experts saying its a fail the fall season because some of the leaves are totally dried and fall from the tree and some of them are still green and started changing color. Hence, it’s not like you will see rows and rows of colorful leaves, but you can see a few yellow and a few greens. As the weather was unpredictable instead of driving miles and miles we choose to explore nearby spots for fall colors. I have already shared 10 spots to see fall colors in the Milwaukee area. I have started my fall bucket list completion from Fall colors in the Whitnall Park. And that trip encouraged me to share the local’s guide to fall colors in Whitnall Park.
Overview of Whitnall Park
Whitnall Park is a year-round favorite spot for locals. You will find all levels of trail easy, medium and hard. There are many visitors who go daily for jogging and walking. If you are a 1st-time visitor then visit the Wehr nature center and they will happy to help you. The staff is very friendly and I would suggest at least go once in the nature center it’s so beautiful. You can find a trail map here:- Whitnall Park Trail Map
Local’s guide to Fall colors in the Whitnall Park
I am a frequent visitor to Whitnall park no matter the season and this is the most feasible place to view fall colors for me because I know every corner of the park. The very 1st spot is the Maple collection area. This is my favorite spot because I love maple trees. Unfortunately, this time when I went to maple collection almost all leaves have fallen off the trees, but I had last year’s picture to show you guys how actually it will look.
Another place which you should not miss is near the Whitnall Park golf course. On the Whitnall Park Drive road, you will see a small parking lot, park your car there and you will see downhill grassland if it’s not downhill then you are in the wrong place. This is the best place to view the sunset, they have picnic benches, you can enjoy the view with your loved one. Take a Walk downhill and enter on the trail you will be surrounded by beautiful fall colors and you will also find some photo addicts like me trying to capture the perfect fall picture. Not just during the fall, but whenever I feel a craving for perfect sunset you will find me here.
After enjoying the view of sunset we head to the Wehr nature center. Many trails run through the nature center, but the trail on the right side of a parking lot is great for colors. From the parking lot itself, you can see the colorful leaves floating with the air. It’s up to you how far you want to hike, we generally go till half a mile or so. You don’t need to go much farther to view fall colors.

Hi, Urvis! Yet another great place you bring with such amazing details. Your love for this park is contagious, so I hope more people will be inspired to spend a day ( or few in a row, why not?) in this amazing place. Colours are beautiful and vivid, no matter they are not so many. I was wondering, what time of a year is this place most crowded?
