Maine Fall Foliage Colors Reporting Begins Sept. 15

We recently received word from our New England travel neighbors at that the Maine Department of Conservation will begin its 52nd season of fall foliage reporting on Sept. 15. 2010.
Maine Forest Service and state park rangers report, in detail, the color changes and leaf drop rates in Maine's seven tracking zones in at least six weekly reports. Each report and an updated foliage map are posted on Maine's official season website You can sign up on the site homepage to receive the weekly reports by e-mail, and fans and followers of the Maine Office of Tourism's Facebook and Twitter (@visitmaine) pages can also get the updates.

We, at The Weekly New England travel and Vacation Blog, highly recommend considering Maine as a New England fall foliage destination. While New Hampshire and Vermont rightfully receive a lot of press for their amazing fall foliage, Maine is also a worthy contender. From the beautiful idyllic inland destinations like Bethel and Rangeley to the coastal splendor of travel spots like Acadia National Park and Camden, we think you'll find Maine to be a wonderful place for fall foliage. But, please, use the Maine foliage reporting tools, first, as each season brings different levels of foliage at specific times during September and October.

Wow, hard to believe the fall foliage season is not too far away!
