The peak of fall foliage season is at least another week away at Sinnemahoning State Park in Cameron and Potter counties.

When I visited on October 12th, the best colors were to be found around the 40 Maples Picnic area, on the banks of Sinnemahoning Creek.

Up and down Sinnemahoning Creek the fall foliage looked great on this afternoon.

There were also an abundance of mushrooms growing near the creek banks, a testament to the warm October we’ve been having.

Further north, towards the park office, the leaves on the Arch Tree were just starting to change colors.

The park office had spotty patches of colorful trees around it, but not nearly as far along as at the 40 Maples picnic area.

The park office and wildlife center was decked out in fall decor, and as always is a great spot to visit when you’re in the area.

So if you’re headed to God’s Country this week in search of fall foliage, my advice is head for the 40 Maples picnic area, or wait a week until things all over the park are further along.
