Are you looking for the best spots for fall foliage in the Shreveport-Bossier area? We are lucky to have so many great spots for leaf-peeping! 

We've listed our family's favorite places to see autumn leaves in Shreveport, Bossier City and beyond! We love hiking and visiting parks, so we included those in our list of where to see fall leaves as well.

Want to know when fall colors will be at their peak in our Area? Check out this fall foliage prediction map from SmokyMountains.com

Simply move the slider at the bottom of the map to get an idea when leaves will be at peak colors in Louisiana and across the United States. 

No map like this can be 100 percent accurate, of course, but it can give you a good idea of when fall colors will peak.
