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, 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 Dartmouth-Sunapee Region is starting to hit peak foliage. Although some areas are still green (!) but the majority of the palette is red, orange and yellow, with minimal leaf drop. This weekend (October 13-15) would be a great weekend to start at Mt. Sunapee, take 103 West all the way through Claremont and then head north on Route 12A until you get to the Cornish Bridge, which is the longest wooden covered bridge in the United States.
