is a wondrous time in the Laurel Highlands. Although the entire
region is ablaze with color, mostly in the month of October, perhaps
the most spectacular displays are in the mountains east of Uniontown.
A trip to Ohiopyle
State Park, Fallingwater,
Laurel Caverns, Fort
Necessity, The Cross,
River / Lake, or simply a ride on a back road will delight all
the senses on a crisp autumn day.
a bonus to the area, the season of color is longer than it might
be expected. Since the mountain areas are at higher elevations,
the climate is a little cooler there, and the season starts about
a week or two before the it does in the low lands. To see the splendor
of the valley region, take a trip to Mt.
St. Macrina, Linden
Hall, Historic Dawson,
or Friendship Hill.
But no matter where you go, you'll be amazed at the tremendous show
nature puts on during the month of October.
If you are particlarly interested in the Fall Foliage, we suggest
you call ahead in September to find out the forecast for peak color
times which vary from year to year.
