Scenic view of the valley


There's fall-time.

And then there's FALL-TIME.

And you haven't experienced TRUE FALL

until you've experienced it in Tucker County, WV.

A magical time in Tucker County as everyone anticipates the fall foliage change. Late summer into early fall is often very dry with perfect temperatures. Shorts by day and sweatshirt by night, does it get any better? Many of us consider this to be the best time of the year to partake in everything Tucker County has to offer.

Fall comes early. As a local rule of thumb peak times can occur somewhere in the first ten days of October. We are dealing with Mother Nature after all. That being said, from the final week of September through the month of October is our glorious autumn foliage season.
