Fall foliage brightens the landscape on Monday in Haverhill, Ohio.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Even though the recent weather may have knocked off numerous leaves, there are still some patches of fall color throughout the Buckeye State, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

“It looks like we are still seeing some peak fall color conditions; however, due to the recent rainy and windy weather, a number of leaves have fallen,” said ODNR fall color forester Greg Smith. “Just because the colors may be fading doesn’t mean you cannot still have a great time outside enjoying the fall beauty of the Buckeye State.”

People interested in finding out where to find most eye-catching leaves throughout the upcoming fall color season should check out fallcolor.ohiodnr.gov/videos, Ohio’s official guide to the changing colors. The website includes weekly color updates and information to help plan a fall color adventure.
