Fall is in the air, and to help visitors plan their trips, Georgia State Parks has launched Leaf Watch 2022. Leaf Watch helps visitors research fall trails and events, book cabins, and read safe hiking tips. It will also track fall color as it moves across the state. Travel tips and seasonal information are available at GaStateParks.org/LeafWatch.
Park patrons are often asked when the leaves will change colors. While only Mother Nature knows for sure, the vibrant hues usually arrive in late October and early November. Some places like George L. Smith and Providence Canyon State Parks in south Georgia have beautiful colors until late November.
Georgia State Parks is encouraging photographers to share their favorite photos on Instagram. Tag #GaLeafWatch and @GaStateParks for a chance to have photos featured in Leaf Watch.
State parks can often get especially busy on fall weekends, so rangers are encouraging guests to try visiting on weekdays or explore lesser-known destinations like Victoria Bryant or Don Carter state parks.
Officials are advising visitors to make reservations for cabins, campsites and yurts as soon as possible. Visitors should consider booking for fall 2023, as it is common for cabins to be booked more than a year in advance. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-864-7275 or at GaStateParks.org.
