The Forks, Maine Foliage Report

Fall is an amazing time of year in Maine – and whether you’re aiming to take a leaf peeping day trip for craft beer and lunch, or looking for an overnight adventure (yep, we’ve got cabins), we’re here to let you know exactly what the foliage is doing here in The Forks! So, every week starting in mid September until mid-October, our team will be flying high to get you a bird’s eye view of the changing colors in The Forks area for your Forks Area, Maine Fall Foliage Report. Generally, we see peak foliage sometime between the last week of September and first week of October. This is perfect timing for our Last Blast on the Dead River, or a fun fall ATV trip!

Weekly Report, Week of September 27th, 2020:

After a brief showing of high color change, the state of Maine Foliage report puts our zone in peak foliage right now! Brilliant reds, oranges and yellows line the trails and river – especially on Tuesday, September 28th! Although the colors are still here (as you can see from the photo above), our peak foliage lost some of its luster after Wednesday’s wind and rain knocked some leaves off the trees. If you’re planning your visit for the coming week, don’t worry- you’ll still see colors along the Dead River or the ATV trails. But this year’s foliage is definitely coming (and going) a little earlier than last!
