Autumn is here. Now is the time to start planning when and where to hit the road and enjoy the scenery. To see the leaves changing color you'll need to start in the northern part of the state first.

More Great Routes to See the Fall Colors
There are quite a few scenic routes to drive where you can see all the fall colors including the Scenic 7 Byway. This one is the easiest for us in our area to drive. It runs from Harrison, Russellville, Hot Springs, Arkadelphia and on through El Dorado to the border with Louisiana. So it's super easy to catch for a day trip at Arkadelphia and drive north.
