Foliage Tips for Autumn

Happy First Day of Autumn! Can you believe fall is here already? The leaves are starting to change, which means leaf peeping season has also arrived. At Dirigo Pines in Orono, we’re perfectly set right in the middle of Maine to take advantage of all the great foliage sights around our state. 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.

The Department of Ag also has recommendations for foliage hikes and paddles — and we can’t imagine a better way to take in all Maine has to offer! From kayaking the Androscoggin River to taking a drive to the top of Mt. Battie in Camden for fall colors and an ocean view, there are ideas for everyone. Check it out here.
