Fall foliage Watoga to Canaan Valley

Have the leaves started to turn from SE WV to Canaan Valley/ Blackwater? If not, any ideas when they might? Thank you.

Just got back from WV today-fall is early this year & the Canaan Valley has already reached it's peak. May I suggest the Bowden area west of Elkins? It is truly spectacular & starting to peak right now. I live in the Great Smoky Mountains & believe me, this was the most beautiful fall scenery I have ever seen!

There isn't a state park in Bowden. It is near the national forest & the Laurel Fork Wilderness area. I've been to Dolly Sods & it is always stunning. Hope you have a great trip!

It was simply breathtaking.. thank you for all your tips.. we went to Dolly Sods, then followed to Bowden and completed at Seneca Rocks.. the off road drive to Dolly Sods was simply amazing.
