fall leaves 300 x 300KENTUCKY (9/25/17) — The Kentucky Department of Tourism and the Kentucky Department of Parks is launching the 32nd year of the state’s ColorFall program. The ColorFall website, kentuckytourism.com/seasons/, highlights peak foliage viewing areas and exciting autumn events across Kentucky.

Kentuckians and visitors are also encouraged to use the hashtag, #kycolorfall to upload any fall photographs of the gorgeous scenery that can be found while traveling the scenic roads of the Bluegrass.

“Kentucky in the fall should be on the top of everyone’s travel list,” Kristen Branscum, Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Tourism said.  “ColorFall is a very useful travel-planning tool, in that it allows you to track the colors by region.  You can travel the entire state and have a truly unique experience with the vibrant fall colors as your guide.”

For more than three decades, ColorFall has provided reports on stages of color changes from key locations across the state. On the ColorFall website, kentuckytourism.com/seasons/, there is a state map where fall colors can be viewed by region and there are blog posts that provide reports on stages of leaf changes from Kentucky State Park staff and naturalists and other volunteers throughout the Commonwealth.

The color changes usually begin as early as September in the higher elevations of the eastern mountains and gradually progress to the west during October.
