This is the second post in a series of posts where we track Fall Foliage in the greater Philadelphia area for Fall of 2020.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania has a longer and more varied Fall foliage season than any place in the world. Pennsylvania’s longitude and latitude location (between 40 and 42 North) along with its topography, and diverse tree species (134 species) contribute to its dazzling and world’s best display of Fall foliage.
But, as you know, the perfect time to view the changing Fall colors varies from year to year.
So just when is the best time to go out on that hike or walk to the woods? When will peak fall foliage be in Philadelphia area 2020?
Bucks, Montgomery and Chester County are currently in their peak fall foliage color, but Philadelphia and Delaware County are starting to approach its best color with peak foliage approximately one week away (i.e. peak foliage predicted for November 2, 2020 in Philadelphia).
