White Mountains Foliage Tracker

Fall ThermometerThank you for following along! Here is the latest fall foliage report from the White Mountains:   


September 27, 2022

Great North Woods

Bright reds are starting to really come alive in this region, and we are seeing noticeable change throughout the region with yellows and oranges. Stick to bodies of water, and the roadsides for most of the color, but higher in the hillsides, we are seeing muted colors sweeping through, and stating to overtake the green foliage.  (35%)

North of the Notch/Twin Mountain and Bretton Woods

With recent rain and colder temps, we are beginning to see some noticeable change in this area. When driving up Route 3 into Twin Mountain, then heading Route 302 towards Conway, expect to see some bright reds, oranges, and yellows...especially near the Omni Mount Washington Resort, Bretton Woods, and down past the AMC Highland Center. (30%)

Franconia Notch 

Driving through Franconia Notch, you will see patches of purple, red, orange, and yellow mixed in with the green. North of Echo Lake specifically, there are bright pops of color.  (20%)

Western White Mountains

Heading on 93 north from Plymouth to Lincoln, there is widespread change...especially hues of yellow, that are starting to take over. Taking a drive over the Kancamagus Highway will give you a brilliant show of colors. Orange and reds dominate but yellows are starting to shine through as well.  (40%)

Eastern White Mountains/Mount Washington Valley 

North Conway and other towns in the Mount Washington Valley are just starting to report come color change. A muted mix of colors are shining through and you may spot localized trees that are brighter than others.  (20%)

Southern White Mountains/Lakes Region 

Higher up in the mountain rangers (Ossipee, Belknap), as well as along the shores of the Lakes (Winnipesaukee, Squam, Winnisquam), colors are starting to pop, however no real widespread change yet. We expect to see more change in the coming week or so.  (10%)
