It’s near-peak fall foliage in the Adirondacks, but here in the Hudson Valley, fall foliage is a little slower to change.
According to the most recent report on iloveny.com, Hudson Valley is at about 20-25%, while the Catskills range from around 40% to 75%, depending on whether you’re in the lower western Catskills (lower end of the peak spectrum) or northern Catskills/Delaware County (higher end).
What does all of this mean? For us, it means there’s still plenty of time to go out and catch the autumn colors change here in the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains. In fact, I was in Westchester County over the weekend, and the trees are green at Oscawana Park in Croton-on-Hudson. Plan it right, and you can watch the leaves reach peak more than once, headed north to south.
