Fall Foliage Report

The bright sunny days and cool, crisp nights we're experiencing now are ideal conditions for trees to bring out their fall colors. These colors are revealing themselves across the state. In Southwest Virginia, colors continue to transition away from green. In the higher elevations near Abingdon and the Blue Ridge Parkway, colors are at peak. In the New River Valley, approximately one-quarter to one-third of the trees have color. In the Allegheny Mountains, significant color change can be seen in Highland County. In the Shenandoah Valley, the fall color change is underway. Fall colors continue unfolding in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain.

See the full report here.

Shenandoah National Park Foliage Report

Leaf colors in Shenandoah National Park
Shenandoah National Park
In the southern section of Shenandoah National Park, the color is just about at peak right now. You’ll likely see a mix of trees that still have a bit of their summertime green, some that have pretty much lost their leaves, some that have turned about halfway, and some that are brilliant with color. There’s still some Virginia creeper showing off its almost-unreal scarlet and some sassafras and sumac displaying their nearly luminescent arrays of tones, like a big freshly opened box of crayons. Read the full report.
