Fall is Legendary

DARTMOUTH-LAKE SUNAPEE region

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
The transition from fall to winter has begun in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region. The leaves that were so brightly colored just a short time ago are now much more subdued, with shades of gold and brown taking their place. There is still much beauty to be found though, as the rolling hills and countryside create beautiful landscapes throughout the year. This is the final foliage report this season for the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region. Follow the reports again next fall starting around mid-September.

GREAT NORTH WOODS Region

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
The colorful leafy autumn scenery in the Great North Woods has wrapped up for another year. Bare trees have taken over the landscape in the region. In some areas, at least in higher elevations snowy peaks are now visible. As the region prepares to transition from fall to winter, now is a good time to start planning your winter getaway to enjoy some of the peaceful quiet this area offers during the winter season. This will be the last foliage report for the Great North Woods this year, be sure to check back next September when foliage season begins again.

LAKES REGION   

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
The show stopping scenery that ignited the Lakes Region this fall is coming to an end. The leaves are losing their luster at the same time the trees are losing their leaves. The foliage that remains on the trees is much more mellow… yellows and greens dominating the color scheme -- though there are still some standout examples of oranges and some reds. This is the final foliage report of the season for the Lakes Region. Check back next September when foliage reports will begin again.

MERRIMACK VALLEY region

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
Much of the region has moved past peak in the Merrimack Valley Region, but there is still quite a bit of color still dotting the landscape. While this week’s rain and wind storms did take some of the leaves off the trees, there are still many trees full of leaves and the colors are very vibrant. Yellows, rusty maroon, and dusty orange colors are painting the final fall picture. Get out and enjoy what’s left of the foliage this weekend! This is the final foliage report for the season for the Merrimack Valley Region. Check back next September when foliage reports begin again.

MONADNOCK REGION

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
The leaves have now made the transition to past peak in the Monadnock Region.

There is still some color left though, tones of rusty orange, and golden yellows are still hanging on strong in some parts of the region. This is the final foliage report this season for the Monadnock Region. Be sure to check back next September when foliage season begins again.

Monadnock

SEACOAST region

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
There’s still a fair amount of color to be found along the Seacoast Region. The foliage was a little bit later arriving in this region this season, so it’s hanging on a bit longer. Be sure to check out the final colors of fall this weekend though, as trees are starting to lose their leaves. The reds and yellows are while still colorful are starting to fade. The oak trees and beech trees are in the midst of their foliage journey, along with various swamp maples. This is the final foliage report this season for the Seacoast Region. Check back next fall, around mid-September when the foliage returns to NH.

WHITE MOUNTAINS Region

Update for Friday, October 30, 2015:
Peak foliage season has come and gone in the White Mountains Region. Rain and wind storms earlier this week have helped to shake most of the leaves off the trees.

Signs of winter have already started showing up on the mountain peaks and this region is gearing up for outdoor winter sports! Skiing, snowmobiling, dogsledding and so much more! This is the final foliage report for the White Mountains Region. Check back next September when foliage season returns to New Hampshire.
