Fall Foliage
We Welcome Fall at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

Welcome to the third day of fall. They days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder, but that means leaves are beginning to showcase the brilliant colors of the season. As you’re driving, I’m sure you’ve taken notice that the tips of most trees are no longer green; most of us know this change all too well. If you live on the east coast, this side of the country is where leaves display the reds, yellows, and oranges of fall. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is surrounded by the burst of color that fall brings, and I’m on the search to find the best.

Just like winter snowflakes, no two years bring the same foliage sights. Dependent on temperature and sunlight, each year factors in a different array of colors, patterns and leaf-fall. Certain trees carry specific colors in their leaves once the nights begin to grow longer toward the end of the year.

Oak – Red, Brown, Russet
Hickory – Golden Bronze
Aspen – Golden Yellow
Dogwood – Purplish Red
Beech – Light Tan
Sourwood – Crimson
Red Maple – Scarlet
Sugar Maple – Orange-Red
Black Maple – Yellow

When you arrive for your Nemacolin stay, take some time to look around the resort and see if you can name what tree species are growing on property. In the meantime, check out the bursts of color we are already beginning to see around the resort:
