The Maine Office of Tourism reports that the Maine Department of Conservation will begin fall foliage reporting on Sept,. 12. You can access the reports at MaineFoliage.com. On the site, you can sign up to receive free weekly updates by email.
Many Maine fall foliage destinations have landed on national “best of” lists including Greenville, Washington County, Bethel, Camden, Rangeley and Portland, according to the Office of Maine Tourism. I feel that some inland Maine locations like Bridgeton and Bethel have fall colors as impressive as what you’ll find in New Hampshire or Vermont, but, of course, we recommend checking for updates as optimal fall colors in a given area vary from season to season.
Whether inland or by the coast, I have always loved traveling the highways and byways of Maine to view, for free, the spectacular fall colors during the peak of the season!
