Georgia State Parks’ “Leaf Watch” Website Tracks Best Fall Color

Travel Tips for Leaf Peepers

For many people, the perfect autumn weekend includes cozy campfires and gooey s’mores surrounded by fiery-hued forests.  To help leaf peepers plan their fall escapes, Georgia’s state parks will soon launch “Leaf Watch 2018” to track fall color as it moves across the Peach State. 

Found at GeorgiaStateParks.org/LeafWatch, the travel planner is filled with top trails and overlooks, mountain cabins and campsites, fall events and hiking safety tips.  Shutterbugs are encouraged to share their favorite shots on the Georgia State Parks’ Facebook page and Instagram, tagging #GaLeafWatch and #GaStateParks. Rangers will also post updates on how fall color is progressing in their parks.

Typically, Georgia’s mountain parks peak in late October; however, color can be seen as early as September and throughout much of November. Reservations can be made by calling 1.800.864.7275 or at GeorgiaStateParks.org/Reservations. 

Park rangers have planned numerous events throughout autumn, including guided hikes and paddles, fall festivals, Halloween hayrides and campground trick-or-treating. A list of events can be found at GeorgiaStateParks.org.
