Fall Foliage Color Update -- Nov. 20

Central/Ouachita Mountain Arkansas

The I-40 corridor on the west side of the state is now past peak. There is still some color on some Maples near Fort Smith/Van Buren. Rain and wind have blown most leaves from the trees. The predominant color to be found is brown.


Little Rock is past peak, though there are a spots of color to be found. Rain and wind this weekend may knock down the rest of the leaves.

Wooly Hollow State Park reports that they are now past peak, with mostly brown leaves to be seen, though there are still some few green, orange, and red leaves to be seen.


Southern/Eastern Arkansas

Texarkana reports that due to recent freezing temperatures, most of the fall color is gone. The early turning trees have either lost their leaves or have brown leaves. The Bradford Pears at the Red River Welcome Center are still green, with some red showing. The Pin Oaks have yellow leaves mixed with brown and green, which are falling. Brown has become the predominant color.

 West Memphis reports that red, orange, yellow and brown leaves are showing, with little to no green leaves left. Hopefully, the recent
cool weather will bring out more vibrant color. The best place to see the colors is I-40 West to Lehi (exit 271) then Hwy 147 South.
