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?

This area is still mostly green. There are random trees that have some color but - so far - there are not any significant areas of color.

The Great North Woods is now experiencing peak foliage. It's quite beautiful no matter where you look but we suggest you take a ride north from Colebrook to Pittsburg. With all there is to see in this region you may want to stay overnight at Lopstick Cabins. This will give you more time to explore the Connecticut Lakes, the 13-Mile Woods or 'Moose Alley.' Just don't forget to 'Brake for Moose!' Another good reason to stay over is Riverfire - an event that takes place in Berlin - where they light bonfires on the boom piers to create a unique experience and spectacular seasonal 'glow' to the region.
