The fall foliage at Black Moshannon State Park was outstanding when I visited on October 11th, 2021!
I first checked out the Star Mill Loop Trail, as that’s one of the places the foliage normally changes the earliest at Black Moshannon State Park – this year is no exception.
Next I made my way down to the boat rental area, where things are colorful but not quite as far along.
I then proceeded to boat launch number 3, where I put my kayak in the water for a lap around the southwestern portion of the lake.
Seeing the fall foliage from the water at Black Moshannon State Park is a favorite October activity of mine.
The calm black water is the perfect mirror to reflect the reds and golds off the trees along the shoreline.
The partially submerged stumps in this part of the lake are remnants of the logging-era activity that went on here.
There were even a few late-season water lilies blooming against the backdrop of fall colors.
The fall foliage at Black Moshannon State Park should really be approaching peak by this coming weekend.
