Foliage in The Poconos
Fall in the Poconos means
many things to many people, but one thing everyone can agree on
is the striking foliage. A
wide variety of tree and plant species create a huge array of colors
across the mountainsides.
The sugar maples turn yellow-orange, red maples get even
brighter, pin oaks turn a deep red, black gum trees turn bright
red, and beech and white birch trees turn bright yellow.
This contrasts the deep greens of the white pine and hemlock
trees, as well as the blue-green shades of the blue spruce.
You’ll also find spread throughout sycamore, ash, white oak,
chestnut oak, scarlet oak, alders, and yellow poplar trees.
As the mornings get crisper
and the shadows sharpen with the changing angles of the sun, this
is the perfect time to take in stunning panoramic Poconos fall foliage
views. Many bright
sunny days and sufficient rainfall predict a stunning pallet of
colors. Poconos fall
foliage can be enjoyed from a variety of elevations in the Pocono
Mountain area. You
can also appreciate unique Poconos fall foliage views from the rowboats
and paddleboats we provide at our lakefront Pocono Mountain rental
All of our vacation
rental houses have stunning Poconos fall foliage views, which you
can enjoy from the large decks and screened porches.
There are also a variety of walking and hiking trails, as
well as parks and picnic areas, within the private community in
which our Pocono Mountain rental homes are located.
Nearby are several state parks, including one on the shores
of Lake Wallenpaupack, with trails, picnic areas, and hundreds of
acres of forestlands.
