After experiencing above-average temperatures this fall, sweater weather finally appears to be upon us and with it, peak fall foliage in our region. Several Lancaster County Conservancy nature preserves offer excellent leaf peeping spots, including Pinnacle Scenic Overlook (https://bit.ly/2yQnorc), which is easily accessible by car and has a scenic view that overlooks the Susquehanna River and a beautiful forested landscape that the Conservancy and our Partners have been working diligently to protect for future generations.
Another great location for seeing fall foliage that offers some challenging hiking is our newly opened Wilton Meadows Nature Preserve, just above Wrightsville Borough (https://bit.ly/2q31Of4). To access this preserve, we recommend taking two vehicles and hiking in along the Mason-Dixon Trail from High Point Scenic Vista County Park. This is marked as more difficult hiking and only prepared hikers should attempt it. The views and diversity of landscapes you will encounter are unmatched in our area.
