Stay up-to-date on the GREAT COLORS of autumn with WASR's FALL FOLIAGE REPORTS.  Taking a stroll into the woods.. walk a back road, go hiking down an old path, or take your bike down one of the great recreational trails to immerse yourself in color.  No matter which  option you choose, the crisp, fresh autumn air and the brilliant color will invigorate your senses!  

For state FOLIAGE REPORTS listen to WASR or visit www.WASR.net.  This year our website features a direct link to the NH STATE FOLIAGE CALENDAR and also to the OFFICIAL NH FOLIAGE REPORTS.   

UPDATE:  OCTOBER 6th... An explosion of color has taken hold of many areas of the Lakes Region. In Ashland, particularly around Squam Lake you’ll find the trees covered in bright bold reds. One leaf-peepers is reporting a “fiery” scene of spectacular red trees dotting the countryside around Barnstead and Pittsfield. While there is still some green to be found in the region, the foliage is becoming much more vibrant and vivid with each passing day, particularly around the lakes in the southern part of the region.  For scenic drives follow a trail of fall foliage along Route 28 from Pittsfield to Alton. A little bit further north, you might try Route 3 in Holderness by Squam Lake or Route 113 from Holderness headed north by Squam Lake. The seasonal display of color is always spectacular reflected in the waters. Make sure to click on the Official NH Foilage Report link on WASR.net (above) to see reports for other areas of the state.
