BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The leaves across Western New York are starting to show their true colors.

According to I Love New York, a majority of Western New York is at the mid point.

But if you really want to take in all of the colors of fall, you'll need to take a drive down the 219 to Allegany State Park. I Love New York reports that areas south of Ellicottville are near peak. According to its website, "Allegany State Park in Cattaraugus County has been showing increasingly yellow foliage this week and reports anticipate peak foliage for the weekend. Oak trees are still showing green leaves, but some are just starting to change at this point. Look for yellow and orange leaves of average brilliance."

The website also projects 60 to 70 percent of trees in Little Valley will see a color change from yellow, orange to red leaves.

Areas closest to Lake Erie are just starting to see the leaves change colors.
