Foliage Reports

Fall Foliage Report for October 28, 2022

This will be the final foliage report of the 2022 season- see you next September!

Great North Woods: Past Peak
With the foliage gone from the trees and temperatures dropping in New Hampshire’s northernmost region, it’s a sure sign that winter is coming. We can look forward to beautiful, snowy landscapes perfect for snowmobiling on the largest interconnected trail system in the northeast!

White Mountains Region: Past Peak
As the colorful leaves continue to carpet the forest floor, the once blooming trees now make way to incredible views no longer hidden by dense foliage. It’s the perfect time for a hike as the barren trees reveal striking viewpoints which are hidden in the summer and fall months. The mountains are anxiously awaiting their first snowfall to welcome skiers, snowshoers, and other winter recreationists.

Lakes Region: Past Peak
In the Lakes Region, widespread leaf loss has claimed the landscapes, and the colors that do remain have dulled to burnt shades of bronze, gold, and deep burgundy. As the last of autumn abandons the landscapes, we can look forward to a wide variety of winter activities to come like ice fishing, ice skating, skiing, and plenty more.

Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee Region: Past Peak
To the west, chilly autumn winds have begun to steal the leaves from the trees, sending them on a whirlwind descent to finally rest on the ground. There are a few yellow-leaved trees hanging around the landscapes, but we don’t expect the color to last much longer. This winter, don’t forget to check out the wide variety of cross country ski trails, ski mountains, sledding hills, and other snowy activities in the region.

Monadnock Region: Past Peak
The foliage in the Monadnock Region put on a mesmerizing show this season, with some of the brightest and long-lasting leaves we’ve seen in recent memory. At this point, the landscapes have shed most of their leaves, and the region has become carpeted in a patchwork of red, yellow, and orange colors. While the foliage has drawn to a close, there is plenty in store for the coming winter and so much to see and do!

Merrimack Valley: Past Peak
Leaves in the Merrimack Valley had a quick peak this season, and now the trees have already begun to shed their leaves. Bundles of colorful leaves are piling up around the region, and the colors that do remain on the trees are fading fast. In the southern part of the region there is still some colorful foliage, but the leaves won’t last for much longer. Soon, snowy landscapes will replace the colorful foliage and we can look forward to the cozy season ahead.

Seacoast: Past Peak
Leaf loss has already set in on the seacoast, stripping the trees of their leaves. The seacoast typically has foliage late into the season, so there are still patches of colorful trees hiding around the region, but by next week we can expect most of the color to fade and descend to the ground. Winter on the seacoast is undeniably charming, and soon we will see wintry scenes in place of autumn’s colorful scenery!
