It’s fall y’all!  We are seeing lots of yellow on the trees as we get closer to the end of October.  Generally the trees start dazzling in color as we near Halloween and peak out the first two weeks of November.  The mild temperatures have made for excellent hiking and camper weather.

If you’re planning a day visit, be sure to book a day pass online before your visit. The park will be experiencing sold-out, record visitation for the next six to seven weeks.

Fall is beginning to show her color with hints of yellow on the maples, elms and sycamore trees.

The weather has been relatively warm this fall, with rain showers forecast for this week. By the weekend, we will see cooler temperatures and abundant sunshine - just what the trees need to keep their colorful transformation process advancing. Although there is a lot of green still showing in the park, fall colors are coming.

If you’re planning a day visit, be sure to book a day pass online before your visit. The park will be experiencing sold-out, record visitation for the next six to seven weeks.
