Get the facts on the Upstate’s fall foliage every Wednesday

Breaking news: Fall has arrived in the Upstate and the trees have the color to prove it. It’s still early yet, but evidence of autumn can been seen in higher elevations like the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area and Jocassee Gorges.

For the latest information on the colorama, check out South Carolina State Parks' fall foliage report posted every Wednesday online. Throughout the fall, Table Rock Interpretive Park Ranger Scott Stegenga will be filing updates on changes in fall color with details on where to look and what you can expect to see.

Along with the arboreal changes, he’ll tell you what wildflowers are showing up along roadsides and trails, competing for the attention of leaf peepers and hikers visiting the Upstate this time of year.

Click here to check out Scott’s latest report. If you get any good shots of color during your Upstate vacay, you can post them on the state park’s website.
