Here is a collection of resources for Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. This includes maps, a live web cam and links for more.

According to Maryland’s DNR: There has been significant leaf drop in Garrett County due to recent wind and rain. The top colors have shifted closer to metro areas.
Deep Creek Web Cam – From Railey Realty
Here’s a look at a live web came from Railey on Deep Creek Lake. The water holds heat longer, so there may be more color in other parts of the county.
This web cam is located at The Greene Turtle Deep Creek Lake. It will pivot to show Wisp Resort, including a zoomed-in view of Squirrel Cage, The Face, the terrain park, Boulder, the mountain coaster, the tubing park and a shot of McHenry Cove at Deep Creek Lake!
