Maine’s fall foliage is turning, but the best is still yet to come during the next three weeks, according to Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.


“Pockets of color are emerging throughout all seven zones, but overall the state is just about 10 percent to 30 percent toward peak. With the upcoming forecast calling for rain over the next several days, we could start to see a rapid color change throughout northern and central Maine. The rest of the state is still tracking a bit behind with peak conditions possibly arriving mid to late October,” according to Gale Ross, fall foliage coordinator.

Leaf peepers can visit the state’s official foliage website at and sign up to receive weekly reports by email. Visitors and natives can share their photos throughout the state as the progression of color begins.
