Are you searching for the best routes to find colorful fall foliage? Don't bother -- someone else is doing it for you. 

Spotters around the state keep the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism updated on the status of the changing of the leaves in their areas. These are posted on by 5 p.m. each Thursday during the season. 

In addition to the color reports, you’ll find suggestions of various scenic drives throughout the state, listings of roadside stands selling decorations including pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks, and locations of corn mazes, hay rides and pick-your-own pumpkin patches.

You can also get the reports by calling (800) NATURAL (800-628-8725).
