Fall Foliage

Fall is a colorful time in the county. Pennsylvania is one of the best places to view the changing autumn leaves due to the diversity of local vegetation.  Brilliant reds and yellows await travelers on many roads throughout the county’s wooded areas.  

Swamp Creek Road near Sumneytown, the Tookany Parkway in Cheltenham, Morris Road near Ambler, Moredon Road in Abington, and Route 663 through New Hanover Township are just some of the roadways where drivers can take in the fall foliage.  Visitors can also explore over 60 miles of multi-use trails throughout the county and enjoy autumnal activities at the seven county parks and five historic sites.  Open space and natural areas protected by municipalities and private non-profit organizations also provide great places to visit during autumn. 

All of these countywide scenic roads and significant open space areas are listed or mapped in Montgomery County Today - part of Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, the recently initiated county comprehensive plan.  Do you agreewith our choices? Comment on the plan and let us know what you think. Perhaps you’ll want to snap a photo of some beautiful autumn colors for our photo contest.
