Live Fall Colors Webcam

Watch as the leaves change in the Nation’s Capital. The  camera is atop the U.S. Forest Service’s Yates Building in Washington, D.C. The lens points west toward Virginia. On the right, you can see the National Mall; on the left is the Tidal Basin. The tall buildings in the far distance are in Arlington, Va. Check back throughout the season as the colors change.

Our webcam is currently down for maintenance. Please check back later, we are working on it.

And under the DC Web cam you'll find links to several others we have placed throughout the country!

To see the Web cams listed below just click on the underlined "hyperlinks" and they'll take you there!

New Hampshire
A camera pointed toward Mount Washington, N.H., and other equipment are used by the Forest Service to measure air quality. A bonus is the ability to see the changing fall colors on the White Mountain National Forest.

North Carolina
The Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness area is extremely steep and rugged, with a dense hardwood forest blanketing the slopes. More than 100 tree species can be found in the wilderness area, including tulip poplars that are more than 300 years old.

West Virginia
The 17,371 acre Dolly Sods Wilderness on the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. The region is known for its extensive rocky plains, upland bogs and sweeping vistas. In the lower elevations, you'll find a forest of northern hardwoods and laurel thickets.

Cameras from Brasstown Bald, at 4,785 feet the highest peak in Georgia, show the terrain looking in a northerly direction and in southerly direction on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. The forest is where the 2,178-mile Appalachian Trail begins.

The Upper Buffalo Wilderness area on the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests encompasses roughly 11,000 acres in northwest Arkansas. The tree-covered wilderness includes oak, hickory and shortleaf pine.

Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area in Idaho and Montana encompasses more than 1.34 million acres. Below the ridges are deep canyons covered with thick coniferous forest while old-growth cedar, fir and spruce are found in the lower valleys. This view is from the Stevensville, Mont., Ranger Station.
