When is foliage at its best?
The foliage peaks at different times in different parts of the state. Generally, the best times to view the fall colors are near the end of September in the far north, the beginning of October in the White Mountain region, and the middle of October in the south.

The White Mountains Region has reached past peak conditions. This is a good time to just take in the scenery before the snow comes as the White Mountains are beautiful year-round. A trip down the Kancamagus Highway from Lincoln to North Conway is a must-do activity anyway. You may not be able to swim in the streams but you can for a hike if you are so inclined. When you get to North Conway, spend some time at the North Conway Scenic railroad, go shopping at the outlets, or dine at a terrific restaurant in town.
