Fall Foliage Forecast

Our fall foliage season is over for this year. Check back next year for information on the changing leaves.

Week of Thursday, October 30, 2014 - Wednesday, November 5, 2014

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.
