In Part 1 of our “Best Routes to Travel For Fall Foliage Views” we covered drives to take on the East coast. In this article, we will be talking about fall road trips to take in western U.S.


Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Washington


If you’re looking for unforgettable fall views, take a drive down the Mount Baker Highway, which is both a Washington State Scenic Highway and a National Forest Scenic Byway. The 116 miles round trip will give you views of the Nooksack River Valley, Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and the peaks of the North Cascade Mountain Range that will look as if they were taken right from a painting. No wonder the climax at the top of Mount Baker Highway is known as Artist Point.



Columbia River Gorge, Oregon


While traveling in the comfortable interior of your Lincoln through miles of scenery you’ve only ever dreamed of seeing, you won’t want your adventures to end. Continue your journey along the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, which is located on Interstate 84 in Oregon and consists of over 80 miles of brightly-colored forests. If you’d like to get out of your vehicle and explore more, you can do so by hiking through the forest. You may even come across one of the many waterfalls that can be found through the Columbia River Gorge.



Yosemite National Park, CA


Yosemite National Park in California may attract large crowds of sightseers during the spring and summer months for its gorgeous views, but the beauty only continues to grow in the fall and the crowds shrink. Autumn is the perfect time to plan a getaway and explore the fall foliage that frames Yosemite Valley.


Now that we’ve covered a few of the best fall foliage road trips to take in eastern and western United States, you just have to pick where you want to start and get on the road. Your Lincoln will make the ultimate vehicle to travel in with advanced comfort, safety, and technology features for all of your long drives.
