Fall foliage in West Virginia

Wicked Weather Bringing Close to W.Va.’s Fall Foliage Season

Oct. 31, 2013

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Chances are running out to see colorful fall foliage this season. Snow in the mountains, widespread rain and expected windy conditions are ushering out West Virginia’s 2013 fall foliage season.

A few bright spots remain, including I-79 from Charleston to Flatwoods and U.S. Route 60 in Kanawha County. If leaves in Putnam and Mason counties remain on the trees after this week’s predicted storm, foliage will peak in those areas this weekend. Leaves along State Route 10 and the Guyandotte River in Logan County are presently at peak.

Some country roads in Wetzel, Marion and Marshall counties still provide pretty-as-a-postcard views, and there are colorful mountainsides to be found in Hardy County. U.S. Routes 220 and 50 in Mineral County are enjoyable drives with good views, along with Jersey Mountain Road in Hampshire County.
