We have extended our fall foliage biking tours until the middle of November due to the unseasonably warm weather.
This is the current Fall Foliage conditions according to the Pocono Mountains Visitor’s Bureau which we are a proud member of since 2015. The pictures below are from the Northeast US Fall Foliage Report according to the Fall Foliage Network in which we are proudly a leaf spotter for!
Week of Thursday, October 27, 2016 – Wednesday, November 2, 2016
Northern: The northernmost color zone encompasses northern Wayne and Pike Counties. Cold weather and rain have brought down most of the leaves in the region. Full color is at 100% with 10% of the leaves on the trees. This region is past peak color.
Central: The central color zone encompasses southern Wayne, Pike and northern Monroe Counties. All of the region has gone through significant changes this past week. Some areas are still showing a broad array of colors. Many of the trees lost their leaves last weekend from the strong winds and rain. Some of the Oaks are still hanging onto their green leaves further to the south, but will change very soon. A good place to view the foliage, this week is on Kunkletown Road from Saylorsburg to Little Gap. Full color is at 95-100% with 40-60% of the leaves on the trees. This region is past peak color.
Southern: The southern color zone encompasses southern Monroe County and Carbon County. Heavy rain and strong winds brought down some of the early fall colors, but the Oaks will continue to show color. As the early players in the fall color fall to the ground look for the color of many Oak trees to be the major component on the mountainside. There are many different colors displayed by these trees such as orange, red, yellow, and even when the bright color goes away, they will hold on showing a russet brown for several weeks. Look for Chestnut Oak and Red Oak on the ridge tops to show the best colors. There will also be some pockets protected from the wind, which will hold on to the early colors as well. Get out and explore the county to find some of these hidden gems. If you get out early enough, you can get some pictures with the heavy forest on the ground. Full color is at 70% with 50% of the leaves on the trees. This region is past peak color.
