Scenic view of the valley


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.

The color canvas is uninterrupted along mountainsides, country roads, and river valleys. Photographers from all over the country have taken note of the vibrant colors found in Tucker County and flock here every fall. Our most popular events of the year are the Fall, Leaf Peeper’s Festival and Run For It 5k charitable run/walk race. Leaf Peeper’s Festival is a three day event held annually the last full weekend in September. Run For It is a part of the festival weekend and is held on that Saturday morning. Come see for yourself what it is like when the ridges are ablaze with color and small mountain towns are full of life.
