NY 2022 Fall Foliage Predictions! This Is When You’ll See Peak Colors!
I am not trying to rush Summer away! I will be hanging on to every last warm sunny day and hope it stretches well past the last day of the season. Heck Fall doesn't actually begin until September 23rd BUT I also like to plan ahead. One of my favorite things to do is drive around New York State as the leaves change colors.
As much as I enjoy leaf peeping I can never remember from year to year when this actually takes place. When will leaves begin changing? When will we be at peak season in New York State? When is it too late? Let's take a look.
Take a look below at the timeline for the 2022 Fall foliage season. Even tough there are 6 good weeks to see the leaves in their various stages it will go quickly and I don't want you to miss a thing.
How brilliant will the leaves be this year? It's impossible to predict with 100% accuracy but some experts claim that it will be fantastic. According to Frommer's, New England is predicted to be spectacular, so why not New York?
There is no finer place to be during the Fall months than New York Sate. Cider donuts, haunted hayrides, apple picking and of course leaf peeping. I researched several places to gather, what I believe, is the best information on the leaf peeping calendar.
