Indy’s fall foliage forecast

Saturday, Sept. 23 marks the first official day of fall — but when will it actually start to look like fall? Here’s when you can expect to start seeing some fall foliage around central Indiana.

If you enjoy hiking, you should visit Turkey Run State Park in the fall.

Maybe you’ve already busted out the flannels, ordered your favorite fall drink, and started decorating for the season. We’ve even started feeling some cooler temperatures. But as we count down to the first official day of fall this Saturday, Sept. 23, you’re probably wondering when it will start to look like fall.

We’ve already shared with you central Indiana’s fall weather predictions — we’re looking at a normal September through November, where we can expect cooler temperatures heading into October.

If you’re a Hoosier, you know one of the best places to view fall foliage is in Brown County, so of course we had to check in with the Brown County Leaf Cam + we can confirm things are still looking very green.

According to the Smoky Mountains Fall Foliage Prediction Map, we won’t really see a change in the leaves until early October, with the best time to see fall leaves between Oct. 23-30.

If you want to fall in love with foliage, Turkey Run State Park, Parke County, and Cataract Falls are some other road trip-worthy destinations.
