Fall Foliage Nearing Its Peak in Warren County


WARREN, Pa. – Fall foliage is nearing its peak in Warren County according to the latest report from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Cooler nights have brought a rush of color to northwestern Pennsylvania. Dominant shades so far have been yellows and golds, especially on locust, aspen, and ash. Dogwoods are starting to show their crimson-red color, mostly on the outer leaves. A sunny, dry week is predicted which should encourage fall colors. Routes to consider for some early fall viewing are Route 59 near Kinzua.

For alternative views, consider a fall foliage ride on the Oil Creek and Titusville Railroad or a paddle down the Allegheny. For more, visit the DCNR website.

Peak foliage is expected to reach its peak in Warren County the week of Oct. 16-22.
