Hodag Country Quick Fall Color Guide
A blaze of color will soon arrive in the Rhinelander area. Maples will turn brilliant hues of orange and red; oaks turn red, brown or russet; birch leaves turn bright yellow while poplars take on a golden yellow. Peak colors will be in Rhinelander soon, so don’t miss the show. See the status of fall colors here.
