Discover Kentucky’s Fall Foliage with ColorFall Program


The Kentucky Department of Tourism and the Kentucky Department of Parks have launched the 32nd year of ColorFall, a Kentucky program that tracks the best places to see the bright colors of the autumn season across the commonwealth.

The ColorFall website, kentuckytourism.com/seasons/, highlights peak foliage viewing areas along with the many special events scheduled each fall in communities throughout the state.

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

“ColorFall is a very useful travel-planning tool,” said Kristen Branscum, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Tourism, “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.”

The ColorFall website, kentuckytourism.com/seasons/, features a state map that shows where fall colors can be viewed by region and reports on the state of leaf changes. 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.
