Great River Road - When to drive for best fall colors? And recs?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to drive along the Great River Road in Illinois (south of Galena to St. Louis) in the next few weeks. We'd really like to catch some beautiful fall foliage.

Does anyone have any experience on the best timing? All color reports I've seen this week say we're barely getting any color in IL right now. But I know it comes on quick! Any experience from previous years?

Any town/park in particular we should see?

Thank you!
