Best Places to See Fall Foliage in New York [LIST]
You either love fall or you hate fall. Yes, the weather is getting colder and winter is closer than we'd like. It does also mean, though, that the trees are going to get a lot more colorful and here's where you can see them.
I do have a bittersweet feeling when it comes to fall because I love the food and the temperature but I could really hold off driving in the snow for more than a few months. What we can look forward to are the beautiful leaves that ease us into boot and glove weather.
Maybe you want to take a quick day-trip or maybe you want to embrace the season, I Love NY has a list of the best places to go to see fall foliage.
- If you want to take a quick one-mile hike, head to the Catskills to Mount Utsayantha for stunning views.
- You could head the opposite direction to the Adirondacks and also get beautiful views from Blue Mountain Lake and Castle Mountain with just a 2.7-mile hike.
- I haven't been out this way but I've only heard amazing things about Letchworth State Park so the views of the trees from there can only be fantastic!
- If you want a more exciting view, think about the zip line on Hunter Mountain on the longest zip line in North America.
- Head to the top of Saratoga Monument
- I love driving around the Rexford Bridge and taking a look at all of the trees along the Mohawk River.
There are quite a few more options if you're going leaf-peeping soon, so check out their website. Are there any places you'd add to the list?
