HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Pennsylvania is widely known for some of the longest and most varied fall foliage seasons anywhere in the country.

In fact, Pennsylvania sports everything from coastal plains to mountains over 3,000 feet in height. Over 130 species of trees and many more shrubs and vines contribute to the display of autumn color. So when is the best time to view the colors?

Every week, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources reports on the changing colors state-wide until leaves begin to fade or reach their past-peak colors. While it may be a little too early for any Instagram-worthy pictures, you can still check out reports from fall, 2020 by clicking on the dates below.
