Foliage at September - is there any chance ?


I want to visit the adirondack, white mountains and Mabel montreol at the foliage. The problem is that my flight back home from new York is at 4/10/2012. I can't change the tickets. We arrive to new York mid- September. Do we still have a chance to see the foliage ?

Thanks a lot,


Adirondack, New York

What is your itinerary? What areas are you visiting when? Where in NY are you flying from? Albany? Do you mean you want to see fall foliage? Is your itinerary still flexible at this point? In the beginning of October plan on being as far north in White Mountains as possible. You might see some colors.

We keep trip journals. We went over the Franconia Notch Sept 27, 1997. We could see some colors though jt was just starting. 2 or 3 days later we headed for Quebec City from PEI. Colors were much better. combination of further north and a few days later. .

We spent the last week in Sept in Lincoln this past fall. Colors were better. though still not at their best we were told. We went over the Franconia Notch Sept 29

Check out a recent Forum discussion titled "Travelling from Boston to see the Fall Foliage" on the New Hampshire Forum. This person had less time than you but was asking about foliage in mid September and later. The discussion will answer a lot of your questions, and may give you some ideas about itinerary. I am certain you will still have other questions, but this may help focus them a bit.

One thing to think about is that the better foliage during your time frame will be in northern most NH and VT, above the White Mountains. But by the end of your trip, they will starting to look pretty good, and maybe even peaking, in The White Mountains.
