NH Foliage Lakes Region
New Hampshire is one of the best places in the world to witness the brilliant crimsons and golds of fall. To help visitors decide when to take a tour of the countryside, NewHampshire.com will publish weekly updates on how the fall colors are progressing during the fall foliage season.
Best time to see foliage?
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 Lakes Region is jumping into the game with foliage reported as glowing and - in some areas - on fire! But there are still spots of green so we can't call this area peak yet. There is still a week or so to go before you'll experience the true autumn beauty of the Lakes Region but you certainly won't be disappointed! Take a trip around Lake Winnipesaukee via Route 3 north to Meredith for a pretty peek at the lake. Or, visit the Sandwich Fair this weekend - from Meredith you'll want to head north to Holderness and then take Route 113 North. This will also give you some views of Squam Lake. Not too shabby!
