The fall colors at John James Audubon State Park are beginning to show more as the temperatures dip a little every day. We expect peak to be the last week of October and the first week of November. Even though we are only about 20% color changed, Virginia Creeper vines and Dogwood trees are fully engulfed in red. Basswood, Paw Paw, Sugar Maple, Sassafras, Tulip tree, Sycamore and Sweet Gum are all starting to show yellow leaves. The leaves from the Kentucky Coffeetree are almost all on the ground.
Since our woods are just starting to change, your best views will likely be around clearings, the 9-hole golf course, and Recreation Lake.
