CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Fall foliage has already arrived in parts of West Virginia, but the show will continue through October, a tourism official said.
“The color of fall is popping up statewide,” West Virginia Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby said in a press release. “While some of our highest elevations have peaked, there are still several weeks of foliage to come in southern West Virginia and beggars.

The north central and eastern parts of West Virginia will offer the best color this weekend. These areas reached 75% to 100% color change, some of the highest elevations just after the peak.
The West Virginia Tourist Board recommends checking the status of individual businesses before traveling. A statewide interior face coverage requirement is in effect. Visitors are encouraged to maintain a safe social distance when traveling.
