The Foliage is Coming!

We took this picture on the side of the road in the Northern Catskills on Sunday 10/08/17, the first day of Chol Hamoed.

But you need not travel so far.

Here are our  Top 10 Spots To View Fall Foliage In New Jersey

Peak fall foliage season for 2017  has hit North WesternNew Jersey and the Mountains and will reach the rest of the state within the next few days /weeks.

Since the summer was fairly dry, leaves will be less colorful in some areas, but you can still enjoy a beautiful, vibrant show.

Head to parks and open spaces near water to see shades of red, orange and yellow.

The following 10 locations are some of the best places to enjoy fall foliage in New Jersey right now.


#1. Mount Tammany, Knowlton, NJ

1. Mount Tammany, Knowlton

You’ll find great colors all along the Delaware Water Gap, but for the more adventurous, hiking to the top of Mount Tammany will allow you to see the leaves for miles.
