Prospect Mountain offers unparalleled fall foliage views. It's about three miles roundtrip to hike, although it's steep and difficult in some spots. so it's not recommended for young children. Once you reach the 2,030-foot elevation summit you're rewarded with a 100-mile view of the region.

Not up for the hike? No worries! You can drive up the Veterans Memorial Highway for a fee of $10 per car, and it's open seasonally through the beginning of November. With fall foliage peaking in October, that's plenty of time to enjoy the sights.
