Close to Home: Touring Maine Foliage

The state of Maine begins offering tips for foliage seekers beginning today. Dirigo Pines is perfectly situated for residents to enjoy day trips both north and south as the leaves begin to change. According to the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s website, northern Maine is at or near peak conditions the last week of September into the first week of October. Central and western mountains of Maine are at or near peak Columbus day week/weekend. Coastal and southern Maine generally reach peak or near peak conditions mid-to-last October.

Another great tip from the site: When planning a fall foliage trip, allow time to leisurely leaf peep. Many of the roads you’ll travel are two lanes and wind along our countryside through quaint inland and coastal towns. Take photographs from rest stops, stroll through the great Maine woods and enjoy our beautiful fall experience.
