About the Pocono Mountains
Thank you for visiting our Fall Foliage Forecast! Home to more than 127 varieties of trees, shrubs and plants, the Pocono Mountains is truly a spectacular sight during the fall season. Because the region spans 2,400 square miles, three distinct color zones are present allowing you to catch peak colors not only once, but three times. Updated every Thursday through the end of October, this forecast will assist you on where, when and how to experience the brilliant foliage in our four-county region. The report is also available by calling 570.421.5565.
View our geographic map of the Pocono Mountains to see our three color zones.
Northern: See some of the final days of the foliage throughout Wayne County. The other areas in this region are well past peak colors with the trees becoming barer as the weeks go by. There are approximately 30% of leaves on trees. This region has passed peak color.
Central: The trees that changed colors early, like the Red Maple and Birch have lost their leaves in the northern parts of the region, though the Oak trees are still holding onto their leaves. Catch the last of the foliage in the southern parts of the region as a few areas have yet to complete the color changes. There are approximately 50% of leaves on trees. This region has passed peak color.
Southern: The Oaks have changed into their russet shades of reds, browns, and tans. Some of the Red Maples are holding onto their bright red leaves, while the Hickory trees provide the deep, rich yellows across the landscape. On breezy days the leaves are beginning to fall to the ground. There are approximately 60% of leaves on trees. This region has passed peak color.
