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 turning on the color splash. Typically, low elevations won't see brilliant color for another week or so, but the higher elevations are starting to glow. Now that we are seeing near-freezing temperatures overnight, and warm days, the stage is set for an explosion of color very soon.
