Things Are About to Get Colorful in the ANF!

Allegheny National Forest Visitors BureauBRADFORD, PA – September 27, 2016 – The fall colors haven’t arrived yet, but when they do get here, they’ll be spectacular! The Allegheny National Forest has 48 different tree species which account for the range of colors – from flowing yellows, to bright oranges and brilliant reds.

The colors are just beginning to change on the Allegheny National Forest, and if weather conditions continue, the colors should be at their peak around the Columbus Day weekend. The Allegheny National Forest has fall color information and photos on the website that is updated weekly: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/allegheny/home/?cid=FSEPRD518244

The Allegheny National Forest is a beautiful forest and we’d like to offer some prime locations to view the fall colors:

  • Allegheny Reservoir
  • Longhouse National Scenic Byway
  • Rimrock Overlook
  • Twin Lakes
  • Minister Creek trail

For anyone interested in finding out the status of fall colors across the country, the Forest Service has a Fall Colors website: http://www.fs.fed.us/fallcolors/2016/
