Falling into Focus: Six Picturesque Trails to Visit This Fall

There’s something magical about spending a fall day outside. Maybe it’s the explosion of color as the leaves change or the chill in the air that lets you wear your favorite sweaters and sweatshirts. Whichever it is for you, we all can agree that fall is one of the most beautiful times to explore the trails #OnTheCircuit.

Pennsylvania has a longer and more varied fall foliage season than any other state in the nation, and New Jersey is definitely no stranger to breathtaking autumn environments, too. With more than 330 miles of trail in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey region, there’s no doubt that you’ll find photo-worthy fall foliage #OnTheCircuit.

While the weather is still warm, plan a trip to one of these six trails to experience the beauty of fall #OnTheCircuit.
