Red Top is considered one of the best parks for fall colors.  State officials say the leaves change in October and November.  Local residents won’t have far to drive for a variety of trails with nice fall color.  The easy, flat 4-mile Iron Hill Loop is open to bikes and foot traffic, offering great views of the lake and forest.  Another good choice for lake views is the 5.5-mile Homestead Trail.  Families with young children will like the paved walking path behind the park office.  Be sure to explore the log cabin and blacksmith shed.  Visit for more information.
