CHARLESTON, West Virginia (October 13, 2016) – Viewing opportunities for the third weekend of fall 2016 continue to be limited. Overall, there is limited color change in West Virginia except for some bright spots at the highest elevations.

This week, leaves in the highest elevations have shown more color, including those in the Davis and Thomas areas of Tucker County, Spruce Knob, the highest point in West Virginia and Dolly Sods.  We are also seeing color changes at elevations above 3,000 feet in Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph and Webster counties.

A few points of interest where color should be anticipated in the next week or so include the Sinks of Gandy and Dry Fork, Cheat Mountain, Shavers Mountain, the headwaters of Tygart Valley River, the headwaters of both Forks of the Greenbrier River, Kennison Mountain and Elk Mountain.

Things to see and do

Kick-off this Bridge Day weekend at Smokey’s on the Gorge for a Taste of Bridge Day, sampling some of the region’s most delectable cuisine. Taste authentic German food and West Virginia craft beers at Heston Farm’s Oktoberfest, or take in beautiful fall scenery in Hinton, where the 50th Annual Railroad Days Festival takes place for the next two weekends.
