Amanda LasleyNov. 3 Report - South Mountains State Park

Nov. 3, 2013, Jacob Fork Gorge Overlook on Chestnut Knob Trail.

The leaves in the South Mountains are at peak color this week. Come see them before they fall! The best long-range view is from Chestnut Knob, but it’s a strenuous hike! Everyone can enjoy the leaves along the River Trail or Hemlock Nature Trail.
