DCNR: Still Lots Of Good Opportunities To View Fall Foliage Over Next Week

On October 31, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources issued its sixth Fall Foliage Report with regional comments on factors influencing foliage changes.
Good fall foliage viewing opportunities persist throughout much of the state, especially in central and southern portions of the Commonwealth. 
Peak colors are expected for the southeast through much of the reporting timeframe, while prime foliage conditions will only last a few more days in the central forest districts of Rothrock, Tuscarora, and Weiser.
Although most leaves are down in northeastern and northwestern areas, an understated “secondary peak” exists in the oak-dominated Pennsylvania Wilds region in northcentral Pennsylvania.
Today’s stormy weather could strip many leaves in areas labeled “starting to fade” and those that will peak for just a few more days.
Don’t forget to look at the comments on foliage by region of the state.
Visitors can get suggestions about the best spots to view fall foliage on the Penn’s Woods Fall Foliage story map and on the Pennsylvania Tourism Office website.
Information on hiking trails in Pennsylvania is available at the Explore PA Trails website.
