Best Places to Enjoy Fall Colors in and Around Pittsburgh

We don’t know about you, but the great consensus at our Pittsburgh car service is that fall is our favorite season. The rivers are flowing, the weather is crisp, and best of all, the leaves have transformed from their usual green to a spectrum of beautiful, bright colors. Unfortunately, this picture-perfect time of the year is short, so you have to make the most of it while you can.

We want to help you make the most of this season by pointing you towards the best leaf peeping locations in the Steel City. Our Pittsburgh transportation service representatives have compiled a list of our three favorite picks and that is what we will be sharing with you in this post. We also recommend employing the services of our Pittsburgh limo service for all your transportation needs throughout the duration of the season. Our professionally trained and hospitable chauffeurs have an intimate knowledge of the city and its environs and will transfer you safely and promptly from location to location as you simply sit back and look forward to arriving at your next fall foliage viewing location. Here are our favorite leaf peeping locations in Pittsburgh. Have a great season!

 

Ricketts Glen State Park

This Pennsylvania State Park covers Columbia, Luzerne, and Sullivan counties. The Park is within driving distance from Pittsburgh, being only 200 miles away. This is a particularly lovely place to view fall foliage, especially if you are a waterfall lover. Not only are the waterfalls flowing better this season due to the early rains, but the leaves have already began turning from their usual green to all sorts of bright colors. Surprisingly, the park is not crowded at this time of year, especially on weekdays; perhaps that is due to the fact that people reverted to their regular routines after summer, which makes it the perfect time to schedule your visit. We recommend taking the Falls Trail when you get there; the trail will lead you to all 23 of the park’s waterfalls; it is arguably the best leaf peeping trail in the entire state.

 

Raccoon State Park

Visit this 7,572-acre State Park in Hanover, only 24 miles (1-hour drive) from Pittsburgh. At this time of year, the foliage is completely draped in brightly colored leaves; it is no wonder Raccoon State Park is one of the most visited parks in the state during Fall season. The park is known to organize events and seasonal programs, so make sure to plan your visit around a Fall-oriented one for some extra fun to go with your leaf peeping.

 

Beam Rock Trail

Head over to the Laurel Highlands and enjoy the Beam Rock Trail which offers visitors stunning Fall foliage views. This location is especially exhilarating if you are a rock-climbing enthusiast. The only downside to the Beam Rock Trail is that it tends to be crowded at this time of year, but there is plenty of foliage to be viewed by everyone. Note, however, wet leaves fall on the rocks making things a little slippery, so exercise extra caution when exploring Beam Rock.

From our clients:

I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
