Fall Foliage and Wildlife around the Ridge restaurant!

Local fall colors start with maple trees along the ridge lines the last weeks of September, followed by the birch and aspen who create the gold, into October! After the golden season, the other colors start creeping along the ridges. Look for bunches of red berries, as they ripen, the cedar waxwings start eating them! As you watch the fall foliage, you’ll notice a variety of birds, who also help track the season’s development. For example, Canadian geese start relocating to tempered climates, where lakes don’t freeze. As you walk along our trails, don’t forget to look down too, where a variety of mushrooms and wildflowers complement the scenery beautifully. After a day exploring the beautiful Iron Range, you’ve likely worked up an appetite! So, pull up a chair at our Ridge restaurant for some delicious Canadian Walleye Fillet Dinner, or any of our other delightful entrees!

Between the breathtaking scenery of the Iron Range and our scrumptious Ridge restaurant meals, you’ll want to book your stay at the Lodge at Giants Ridge soon to catch our glorious fall days!
