If you are looking for solitude to enjoy nature in peace, then Miller Woods Conservation Area is one of Willamette Valley’s best-kept secrets. The donated parcel of land is a well-maintained forest where users can explore nature in an intimate setting. The lush woods turn from bright green to a stunning golden hue each autumn. Later in the season, you’ll enjoy the crunch of leaves covering the forest floor as you wander through this hidden gem.
Silver Falls State Park is an absolute must-see when visiting the Willamette Valley and during the fall season, this gem turns into a golden paradise. The blue-green falls pop against the yellow foliage creating a truly unique experience. Pack a picnic and enjoy at the main falls or hike up to the other falls to immerse yourself in the autumn glow.
The Willamette Valley is famous for their light-bodied and fruit-forward Pinot Noirs, and fall is the perfect time to venture to these vineyards and sip on a glass of wine with a view. Take a curvy backroad through walnut and oak trees and arrive at a picture-perfect winery tucked into the hills. You can also have a more intimate interaction with the winery and the winemakers during this less tourist-filled time of year.
Who says you have to go somewhere far off to see the beautiful fall foliage? Spend a night at Bella Collina B&B and watch the sunset bring out the golden hues of the valley from the hilltop. Wander around this 30-acre property to get close to the beautiful golden leaves or relax by the pond to soak in all of the beauty.
Keep an eye out for oaks and maples this time of year as the weather cools and the autumn spirit comes alive.
