Every fall foilage trip should start with a stunning view. We recommend this stop for the best vantage point of fall colors consuming the battlefield, it will take your breath away. Watch the historic fields transform into a picturesque autumn scene right before you.

2. Confederate Avenue
Take a drive through this tunnel of vivid colors. Feel the history of the hallowed grounds as you pass cannons, preserved farmland and even the site of Pickett’s Charge. We recommend continuing down the road to find the observation tower where you can stretch your legs as you climb to the top. You won’t regret it; you will be rewarded with a spectacular view.

3. Seminary Ridge
A must-see for any serious or amateur leaf peeper! Enjoy the vibrant reds and purples of these majestic red maples at the location of the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg.

4. Buchanan Valley
There is nothing more beautiful than Adams County in the fall. Immerse yourself in rolling hills filled with brilliant colors with a drive through the countryside. Passing fruit trees and rolling hills, this landscape is bound to become one of your yearly fall foliage go tos.

5. Sachs Bridge
Take a step back in time and enjoy history as you soak in the colors around you. This charming bridge originally built in 1854 is the perfect foreground for those lovely autumn photos.
