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
Updated October 18, 2017
The Great North Woods Region is at peak and will likely be somewhat past peak as we go into the weekend. There are many beautiful spots in this woodsiest, northernmost part of New Hampshire. This week we think it would be worth roaming around, looking for wildlife and enjoy the journey. We recommend heading north from Berlin on Route 16 to Route 26 (W) in Errol and through Dixville Notch. This is one of the most scenic spots in the Granite State. If you are feeling a little more adventurous, continue along Route 3 north to the Canadian Border. There's no need to go through but the area offers unparalleled beauty. Don't forget to watch out for wildlife (BRAKE FOR MOOSE!) and you may actually see some along the way! Enjoy these last few days of peak foliage here as the leaves will be turning russet, burgundy and brown before falling to litter the ground and leaving the trees bare for the months ahead.
