Fun Fact: Falling for Fall Foliage

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources features a weekly fall foliage report every year starting in September.

The department highlights the trees’ transition each week with reports from experts with Maryland state forests and parks. The reports also include photos from various counties submitted by outdoor enthusiasts who capture the changing colors.

The colors of the foliage, the length of time it lasts, and how soon the leaves will change all depend on the weather, primarily rainfall and temperature. In the 2022 Fall Foliage Preview, experts state that the season is trending to be similar to 2021. Counties in Western Maryland will hit their peak in the next couple of weeks while counties to the East will hit their peak in late November.

Visit the Maryland Department of Natural Resources website to stay up to date on the trees in transition or experience all autumn has to offer in Maryland’s Counties on a fall foliage tour.
