The Best Fall Foliage Spots in Washington


Washington is full of beautiful fall foliage views. In fact, it can be difficult to discern which areas are most worthy of your time since there are so many awesome spots to choose from. While some RVers might have weeks available to take it all in, perhaps you only have a handful of days or even just a weekend. Here, then, are Washington’s best spots for fall foliage.

Hoh Rainforest

Located in Olympic National Park, Hoh Rainforest features bigleaf maple trees along its famous Hall of Mosses Trail. Visitors may catch a glimpse of Roosevelt Elk herds if they’re lucky while they enjoy the fall colors.

Pend Oreille River Valley and Lakes

Featuring some of Washington’s best fall colors, visitors can enjoy the colors on the larch, cottonwood, and aspen as they turn a vivid shade of yellow. The Kettle Range stands in the background and adds to the area’s natural splendor. The best part of this destination is that it’s little known and doesn’t receive many visitors, so crowds are not an issue.

Washington Park Arboretum

For those who don’t want to head out into deep nature for their fall colors, just head over to Seattle to visit the exceptional Washington Park Arboretum. It covers 230 acres and is jointly maintained through the funding and efforts of the City of Seattle and the University of Washington. The Arboretum has a wide collection of trees, but the highlight is probably the Japanese Garden, which features Japanese Maple, Asiatic Maple, and Mountain Ash.
