Eastern Panhandle Counties Offer Last of Fall Color West Virginia’s fall foliage season coming to an end.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Foliage in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle counties is past peak but state foresters report it is still colorful and plentiful.  Leaves in Berkeley, Jefferson, Mineral and Morgan counties are hanging tough and remain on the trees despite being past peak. Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area, Keyser and Berkeley Springs are recommended places to visit.

West Virginia Division of Forestry officials thank everyone who posted images to the DOF’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/wvforestry, or tweeted them using #wvfallcolor.

This is the last fall foliage report for 2014.
