Nothing exemplifies the stunning beauty of changing seasons better than fall foliage. As temperatures dip, the vibrant greens of summer give way to the fiery reds, vibrant golds and shimmering yellows of autumn. Check out the slideshow to see 50 spectacular places around the world to see fall foliage, which rightfully includes Walkway Over the Hudson.
In the U.S. alone, you don’t have to travel far to witness the brilliant colors of fall. National and State parks provide the perfect setting for viewing—and enjoying—fall foliage.
Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming is especially known for its fall color. While there is no way to accurately predict exact “peaks” of fall colors, in the Tetons, the third week in September has historically been about the peak for fall colors, according to the National Park Service. There, the leaves of the deciduous trees blaze mostly yellow and orange (and occasionally red) shades in the fall. Reflections in Teton’s clear lakes offer double the color, according to Wilderness.org.
Walkway’s peak leaf peeping typically occurs in early October. I Love NY has a handy fall foliage tracker to help you plan your visit to the Hudson Valley and other top destinations around New York State.
