Fall Foliage Report

The weather has slowed the fall season color change. Nighttime temperatures around freezing and bright sunny days are needed to produce vivid colors. In Southwest Virginia, few areas of peak color remain. In the New River Valley, colors are at peak or past peak. Along the Blue Ridge Parkway, higher elevations are past peak but the lower elevations are in prime season. In the Shenandoah Valley, approximately 50% of the trees have color. The Piedmont still has approximately 60% color. The Coastal Plain is transitioning away from green and is expected to peak in mid-November.

Shenandoah National Park Foliage Report

There’s still plenty of color to be seen if you visit Shenandoah any time in the next few days. Sure, you’re not going to find yourself standing under maples and oaks glowing with the blazing hues of early fall – fiery gold, Day-Glo orange, Atomic Fireball red. But when you gaze out from peaks like Compton, Hawksbill, Turk Mountain, or from overlooks along Skyline Drive like Range View, South River, or Trayfoot Mountain, you’re still going to see lots of color. Read the full report.
