12 Sep It’s Maine’s Leaf Hunting Season!! How To Do More Than Just “Drive Thru” The Fall Show
Up here in Maine, we are more than Leaf Peepers – oh yes indeed. We are Leaf Hunters – we take seriously the business of immersing ourselves in one of the most spectacular color shows of nature. In our neck of the North Woods, this show just so happens to arrive annually in September-October, peaking in early October. We consider ourselves ridiculously lucky to get front row boat seats to drink in the intense oranges, reds, golds, and yellows blanketing our deeply forested region. And yes – it’s true, the state of Maine is home to one of the largest deciduous forests in the entire United States!
We’re ok with the leaf peepers headed to Vermont or New Hampshire to drive slowly on their lovely (crowded) back roads, cause we have LOTS of room to spread out in boats on rivers and lakes, on bicycles, with flyrods, hiking shoes, on motorcycles & ATVs, and yes maybe a few cars, to get smack into adventure recreation in the best colors in New England.
Maine puts out a great Fall Foliage report that is regularly updated during the fall season. Opening day for their reporting is today, September 11. Check out the full Fall Foliage report and best Fall Things To Do here. Northern Outdoors is located in Zone 5.
