Central Park

Obviously, the first place anyone should look for Fall foliage in New York is Central Park, don’t you agree? We recommend starting your leaf peeping quest at the Water Conservatory close to the Fifth Avenue entrance. From there, proceed to the 38-acre nature trail in the middle of the park where you will get to enjoy the Tupelo Meadow in all of its shades; from red, purple, orange, and yellow throughout the duration of the season. If you still want more, head over to the North Woods, a homely landscape by the ravine; the North Woods feature brooks, red maple, elm, and black cherry all sporting a variety of colored leaves. Additionally, the nearby Great Hill hosts a variety of European beech trees that normally sport orange-red colored leaves throughout the season. Note also, if you are not up for a solo stroll through central park, you can sign up for a private guided fall foliage tour by an experienced professional.

The Adirondacks

Head over to the Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, New York’s fifth highest mountain, standing at over 4,800 feet. At the summit, you will get to enjoy wonderful overhead views of the fall foliage below. Don’t worry, however, you don’t have to hike to the summit; the mountain summit is accessible by car through Memorial Highway. We recommend that you plan your visit for a day with an event for some extra fun to go along with your foliage quest.

Indian Lake Drive

This is for the more enthusiastic leaf peepers; this drive along Route 73 will bring you some amazing Fall scenery. Drive through Keene Valley and head straight towards the Adirondack Peaks for majestic overhead views. From there, head on down to Lake Placid and take Route 86 where you will drive along the Ausable River. This 672 mile drive I sure to quench your thirst for fall foliage; just make sure to be mentally prepared for the drive, which should take you well over 10 hours.
