The first bursts of red, yellow and gold fall foliage begin to appear in some areas of Kentucky as early as mid-September. According to the Kentucky Department of Tourism, color changes appear in the eastern regions of the state first and work toward the west, usually over a time period of a week to two weeks. The average typical peak time is around mid October.
