10.4.13 Foliage Peaking for Many

With foliage peaking in many spots, it will be a great weekend to do some leaf peeping!
Fall foliage is peaking in many places, so leaf peeping will no doubt be in full force this weekend.

Peak foliage is occurring up and down the spine of the Green Mountain, as well as in the Whites of New Hampshire and Adirondacks of New York. With that in mind, here are some of the top spots to check out.

New Hampshire: Color is 80-100% of peak in places like Franconia and Littleton, with 75% color in places like Woodstock, Lincoln, and Campton.

That means taking a drive along Route 118 through North Woodstock would be colorful, as would a ride on the Kancamagus Highway.

New York: Believe it or not, color is just a little past peak in the Lake Placid area, but Whiteface will be near peak this weekend. Tupper Lake is also 90-95% of peak.

Driving along Routes 3 and 30 will no doubt offer excellent, vibrant views.

Vermont: Color is peaking up and down the spine of the Green Mountains this weekend, as well as in the Northeast Kingdom. Vibrant color can be enjoyed in the Cambridge area, especially.

Bright colors will dot the hillsides along Routes 100, 15, and 108 through Smugglers' Notch.

From a weather point of view, Saturday will be the better of the two weekend days. Skies will remain mostly cloudy, but there will be some sun and it will stay primarily dry. Sunday, on the other hand, features a return to some showers and eventually steadier rains late Sunday into Monday.

As always, be sure to upload your fall foliage pictures to our website!
