    hey folks,

    I am planning a leaf peeping in Maine with a few others and we're trying to determine where to go to enjoy the fall colors. Has anyone got favorite spots for to experience the foliage?

    hiya Salvatore,

    Maine is a huge state so the foliage happens on different weeks. However, the foliage usually peaks in the northern portion by the end of September, while in the southern coast, peak colors happen around mid October.

    Baxter State Park, home to Mt. Katahdin, is one of the best spots for leaf peeping in Maine, and it's not far from the lovely town of Greenville.

    Fall leaves in Maine

    My cousin used to live in Brunswick, and they had some pretty great fall shows there.

    His family just loved the scenery in Acadia National Park, along the coast by Bar Harbor. It has some pretty amazing views in any season, actually, but fall is great.

    Many of the best destinations for New England fall foliage are located in Maine. The forests of northern Maine have some pretty wonderful shows. But you need to know when to go since they tend to turn early. Southern Maine gives you more time to see the leaves.
