Connecticut’s brilliant fall foliage season is right around the corner! The State of Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) interactive fall foliage report map is now available. It forecasts the progression of color across our corner of New England.

According to current estimates, peak foliage will arrive in the northeast and northwest corners of the state around Columbus Day and extend to the lower Connecticut River Valley and shoreline through early November.

State foresters predict Connecticut will have a magnificent foliage season this year with vibrant colors. Better yet, Connecticut’s foliage season typically runs longer compared to northern New England states, offering travelers even more opportunities to see and experience the autumn beauty.

According to Christopher Martin, Director/State Forester, Division of Forestry, Bureau of Natural Resources, DEEP, “Connecticut’s woodlands are poised to present a brilliant display of colors this fall given spring and summer rainfall amounts and moderate temperatures. Continued moderate conditions will set Connecticut on a path toward an ideal foliage season this year.”
