New Hampshire is an adventurer’s playground during every season of the year, but there’s something particularly special about a fall break. During this time of year, the landscape transforms into a colorful paradise ripe for exploration. Across the state, you’ll discover not only beautiful views and amazing outdoor activities, but also an array of incredible festivals and events that celebrate the fall foliage season. New Hampshire has something to offer families, couples, and adventurers throughout fall, especially in September and October, as the fall foliage typically peaks around the middle of October.
Fall Color Changes
The landscape of New Hampshire undergoes an incredible transformation every fall, creating a color display that you have to see for yourself! The transformation begins in the early weeks of fall, with the dense forests of New Hampshire – covering almost 4.8 million acres – gradually becoming more vibrant. As the chlorophyll in the leaves breaks down, luscious greens give way to striking reds and fantastical shades of yellow and orange. At the peak of the transformation, the landscape is a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors, with each tree species contributing something different to the remarkable scene. New Hampshire has more than 80 native tree species – from softwoods like juniper and pine to hardwoods like birch and hawthorn – so you can look forward to quite the color show!
