The fall foliage conditions in the Quehanna Wild Area varied widely when I visited on October 12th, 2021.
My first stop of the morning was at the Teaberry Trail Vista, a quick 5 minute hike from a parking area along the Elk County portion of the Quehanna Highway.
The fall foliage here at Teaberry Trail Vista was excellent.
After spending a few minutes here, I decided to continue offtrail another 0.4 miles to Red Run Gorge Vista, also shown on the map above.
Although this hike was popularized by hiking blogger Jeff Mitchell back in 2018, this was my first time visiting it during fall foliage season.
The scene here was outstanding (although not yet quite as vibrant as the scene at Teaberry Trail Vista), and the hike pases through a small boulder field reminiscent of Jakes Rocks in the Allegheny National Forest.
Making my way back to the parking area along the Quehanna Highway, I next headed for Wykoff Run Falls along Wykoff Run Road.
Wykoff Run Falls was flowing well and the golden foliage around it was excellent.
To summarize – the fall foliage conditions in the portions of the Quehanna Wild Area I visited on October 12th ranged from just starting to change to full-on peak conditions, varying greatly even between neighboring gorges.
With an area this large and the terrain so diverse, there is really no “perfect” time to catch all the fall foliage in the Quehanna Wild Area at its peak – some is here right now and other should be a week from now, if not longer.
Be sure to check out my Kettle Creek State Park 2021 Fall Foliage Update for more photos taken the same day as the Quehanna photos above.
