Maine’s foliage report says the northern regions of the state are on track to reach peak conditions this week. Fall colors in all other areas of the state will occur from north to south through mid-October.

“The peak conditions projected for this upcoming long holiday weekend set us up for one of the best weekends to plan your fall foliage leaf peeping trip to your favorite destinations.,” said Gale Ross, Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry fall foliage spokesperson. “The canopies across Maine are showing off their most vibrant colors! The leaves are still clinging to the trees with low leaf drop throughout Maine, which makes for perfect timing for our leaf enthusiasts.”
