Peak Fall Foliage Map

When to Find Peak Color in New England

Let’s start by noting that one person’s peak is another person’s near-miss. Factors like temperature and moisture are different every year, meaning we never see the same show twice. If you miss peak color in one place, you can always look somewhere else later — at least until the end of October!

As the map changes, so will the calendar as it highlights the approximate peak dates for different parts of the region. Happy leaf-peeping!
