Leaf-peeping is a popular pastime during the fall. Catching the trees at peak fall foliage can be challenging, however, with factors such as weather, overall climate and tree health affecting the color-changing cycles.
Fortunately, there are many fall foliage maps that can help you plan you trips!
- NewEngland.com has a live, interactive fall foliage map that allows you to toggle foliage based on its status (green, turning, moderate, peak, fading, and gone). Camera icons denote the best places to hike for quality views.
- Weather.com has a foliage map that spans the entire country, though it is slightly less detailed than regional fall foliage maps that you’ll find online.
- FoliageNetwork.com offers great detail and tips for planning scenic drives through foliage hotspots. Can’t make a trip? Check out live streams via their webcams!
- SmokyMountains.com sets itself apart with a time lapse feature. Click and drag to see foliage forecasts for the rest of the season!
