Fall 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 homes. 

 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. 

  The Forest Service maintains a Poconos Fall Foliage Hotline: 800-354-4595
