Maine expecting colorful fall foliage season as summer winds down

  • Print

AUGUSTA, Maine - As summer winds down, Maine conservation officials say they're expecting a vibrant fall foliage season.

The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and the Maine Office of Tourism will begin releasing their weekly fall foliage report on Sept. 10. They will last through Oct. 25.

Officials say that conditions in northern Maine meant that residents and visitors will likely see subtle colour changes and low leaf drop.

The last week of September and the first week of October are usually when colours are the brightest in northern Maine. In the central, southern and western mountains, peak times range from Oct. 6 through 18. Along the coast, the best time to view the leaves is Oct. 13 through 25.
