When And Where To Expect Washington’s Fall Foliage To Peak This Year

There are two types of Washingtonians: those who dread the end of summer and those who have been ready for changing leaves, pumpkin patches, and sweaters since late July. But whether you’re “team sunshine” or “team autumn,” we can all agree that the fall foliage in Washington is nothing short of spectacular.

After dry or hot summers, fall foliage here in Washington is especially vibrant, and when you start to see it depends on the part of Washington you call home. (You can view the Smokey Mountains Fall Foliage Prediction Map here.) But for the most part, you can count on the month of October being peak viewing time. Starting in early October, these spots will be especially amazing for enjoying the colors.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
