(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) The changing of the seasons ushers in new opportunities for rest and recreation in Oklahoma when fall colors decorate the landscape. As the weather cools, Oklahoma becomes the go-to place to experience glorious fall foliage and family-friendly festivals. Foliage Update 09-23-2020: The fall foliage season at Boiling Springs State Park is in its earliest stages. Some yellow leaves are showing up here and there, but the vast majority of trees are green. Typically, foliage can be viewed at its peak from the last week of October through the first week of November. Enjoy a scenic drive through one of the prime foliage areas with the windows down or hike through an outdoor recreational area, watching as the autumn leaves seem to change colors before your eyes. Meander across the tops of ancient mountains and marvel at the breathtaking vistas as you overlook miles of rolling hills set ablaze with spicy fall colors on the Talimena National Scenic Byway. Or explore the Arbuckle Lake and Chickasaw National Recreation Area to gaze upon nature's magnificent colors reflecting on the lake's surface and lining the rippling creeks. Plan your fall escape during late October and the first week of November to catch the peak foliage displays. The Oklahoma land produces a bountiful autumn harvest. So, pack up the family and head out for some fun on the farm at pumpkin patches and giant cornfield mazes. Or, schedule a weekend getaway around one of the many fall festivals and celebrations across Oklahoma. 14 Fall Foliage Routes: 1. Boiling Springs State Park 2. Chickasaw National Recreational Area 3.
