Dreamy photos to inspire your trips this fall

From the mountaintops to the valley lows and everywhere else the light touches, dazzling colors saturate forest canopies with vibrant yellows and oranges and fiery shades of red that reflect the waning warmth of the autumn sun. West Virginia might be home to four incredible seasons, but fall always leaves us in awe of nature’s beauty.

If you’ve ever traveled through the Mountain State during the fall, you know that West Virginia State Parks offer some of the most beautiful autumn views in the country. With 35 parks and nine forests, it’s hard to visit them all. So, here are some of our favorite fall photos to help you appreciate the beauty of our parks and forests and plan a fall trip of your own.
