Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park

View from the Churh Shelter at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park Week One ColorFall

Hints of fall color are beginning to be found in the forest at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park.  Some of the most showy tree species so far are Blackgum and Sourwood, both are showing beautiful reds. Flowering Dogwood, Sassafrass, Sumac, Black Walnut, Catalpa, the Maples, and Tulip Poplar are also showing color. Most of the color is being on the edges of the forest.  The forest interior is still holding on to green. Current color change is approximately 5 to 10%. Peak fall color is expected to be mid to late October.
Fall color should be nice for Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park’s Fall Photography Weekend October 17-19, 2014. Online registration is available at https://secure.kentucky.gov/formservices/Parks/photography
