Division of Forestry provides foliage report
October 4, 2012 ·
West Virginia Division of Forestry officials say the upcoming three-day Columbus Day weekend is the perfect opportunity to see peak foliage in a variety of areas of the Mountain State.
leaves are changing quickly along the higher elevations. Lower elevations are coming along nicely too,
so even if you don’t get to the highest peaks, you should see color wherever
you go this weekend.
Wilderness and Spruce Knob were reported to be at peak earlier this week but good
color should remain through the weekend.
elevations of Randolph and Pocahontas counties are expected to peak this
weekend, including at Cheat Mountain and Shavers Mountain.
Nicholas and Webster counties are at 70 percent peak. Point Mountain in Webster County is reported
to be beautiful, but not quite at peak.
elevations of Tucker County are at 80
percent peak with a variety of reds, oranges and yellows.
