The fall season just began last weekend, and the fall foliage has already begun. The Adirondacks are already experiencing peak fall foliage, with about half the leaves changing color. This is no surprise, since the Adirondacks are always the first spot in New York State to have fall foliage. However, it is a little bit earlier than normal since it has been so dry in the Adirondacks as of lately.
This weekend, Saranac and Tupper Lakes, as well as Old Forge, are expected to change by 35% or more in terms of fall foliage. The rest of the state, including Central New York, hasn't seen much of a change yet. The Empire State Development Division of Tourism says that things around the rest of the state are staying in the early stages of foliage for the moment. However, Central New York will see some changes this weekend with the Mohawk region and Schoharie county seeing 25% or more foliage increase. Onondaga county is only expected to have a 10% increase, so not anything too significant yet. I'm sorry to disappoint. However, if you just can't wait, definitely consider traveling to the Adirondack region to get all in the fall vibes this weekend!
