WHITE MOUNTAINS Region
Update for Friday, October 17, 2014: 100% - Past Peak
While much of the northern White Mountains are now past peak, there is still some nice foliage to see around the region. Towards the very bottom portion of the region, the colors are still bold and bright in many spots. In Thornton, our leaf peepers have spotted a stunning display of deep golds, reds and oranges. The oak trees in particular are spectacular as are the aspens and beeches. Route 3 is still reported to be a very nice drive, full of fall color around Thornton and North Woodstock. The eastern White Mountain area is also still hanging onto some pretty color. In North Conway, Jackson and Bartlett, they are seeing spotty reds, oranges and bright yellows. Try Route 16 from Glen down through North Conway village for a scenic drive as well as plenty of options for shopping and dining in the village! The eastern side of the Kancamagus Highway towards Conway should also still be a great ride, in fact, the entire route is worth the trip even if the leaves have begun to fall in some spots.
