Where Are the Best Leaf Peeping Spots in Our Area?
If you’re curious about when the best time to go leaf peeping is or where the best locations to do it are, we want to help you out now that fall is here.
First, the Department of Forestry has a website called www.dof.virginia.gov/fall/ that provides a weekly fall foliage report that’s very helpful.
As far as locations go, you can try Skyline Drive, but sometimes that can turn into “Parking Lot Drive” because of all the people. If you want to avoid the crowds, you can check out Prince William Forest Park in Triangle, Virginia, which features 37 miles of hiking trails, or Mount Vernon, which is 500 acres and faces the Potomac River.
“You can try checking out the foliage from the water by taking a cruise on the Potomac or taking a pontoon boat tour at Burke Lake. “
Additionally, you can check out some of our local area parks, like Burke Lake Park, Great Falls Park, or Riverbend Park. They can get pretty crowded during the fall, but they’re worth a visit.
