It finally feels like fall and with the peak of fall foliage coming at the end of October/beginning of November this year, Montgomery Parks has released a fun list of places to check out for signs of autumn.
Maydale Conservation Park
In the eastern part of Montgomery County, there are hints of fall. Dabs of yellow are beginning to show on trees around the pond at Maydale Conservation Park.
Sligo Creek Stream Valley Park
Crunch your way along Sligo Creek Trail. The paved path is covered in brown and yellow leaves which collect and disperse with the wind. The canopy is punctuated with hints of yellow and orange.
Agricultural History Farm Park
You can find fall changes beyond foliage at Agricultural History Farm Park. The fields are golden brown and ready for harvest. Dahlias are in bloom next door in the Montgomery County Master Naturalists’ gardens. And, there are glints of red on a maple tree.
Rock Creek Regional Park
Lake Bernard Frank at Rock Creek Regional Park is a beautiful spot for quiet and solitude right now. Pack in a chair or find a log and take in the crisp air and seasonal scenery. Yellow leaves are saturated at sunset.
Cabin John Regional Park
Look high and low on the trails near Locust Grove Nature Center at Cabin John Regional Park for autumn color.
