People come from all over the region to see the Fall colors at Holy Hill. This is a gorgeous church set on top of the highest hill in this part of the state, and it is surrounded by forests, rural roadways, barns, cornfields, and hiking trails. The Ice Age trail runs through the property.
Last year I did this drive in early October. Even though it was a Monday, it was packed when I arrived at nearly noon. They do a mass at 11 am and we were lucky enough to hear some of the singing and the church bells chime at noon. I brought my grandson Landon and he was impressed with the dinging. We took an indirect route to the chapel. With a GPS in the car, you can easily set your location and then take off on any of the rural roads surrounding the property, knowing you will get there eventually. There are a couple of rustic roads that are narrow and tree covered, so if you have the time, find them on the map and travel them. You'll get to see creeks, unique homes, barns, and just beautiful trees everywhere. We did this and it was great!
