Fall colors getting late start at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2016

Are you planning to check out Fall Colors Weekend at Starved Rock State Park? Slowly but surely leaves are starting to turn.

According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, it was a slow start for fall colors at Starved Rock. Fall color is about 35 to 40 percent change in and around Starved Rock. The DNR says the main entrance road off of Route 178 is one of the better areas for colors. Views from the overlooks are still predominantly green but that’s expected to change quickly in the next few days.

Thousands are expected to check out Fall Colors Weekend at Starved Rock. For potential park closures, you can follow the DNR on Twitter and Facebook.
