I LOVE NY started the “State’s Official Fall Foliage Color Reports” on September 12 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November.  Fulton County has its own “foliage spotters” to participate in this annual report.

Our Fulton County Report for the Week of September 26-October 2:

Reporting station: Adirondack Country Store, Northville, Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center, Benson & Peck’s Lake Enterprises, Inc., Gloversville

Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 40-50%.

Brilliance: Average to Bright

Predominating colors: Yellow, Gold, Red

Rating: Midpoint

Our prediction of this week being midpoint seems to be holding true. We are still predicting the peak weekend to be Columbus Day weekend, October 5-8.  Barring any large storms that will knock down the leaves, we are hoping for a beautiful peak season.  It will likely last about two weeks ending September and beginning October.

Call for a free copy of our Harvest Tour map to accompany your Fall Foliage ride!  The Harvest Tour map will assist in finding apples, cider, pumpkins, mums, baked goods, and so many more seasonal products.

We also have the Route 29A Chain of Lakes map which includes Peck’s Lake and the Great Sacandaga Lake map including the Northville/Benson area.  Both maps include attractions, shopping, dining, and much more to help plan your Fall Getaway!
