News for Wolfeboro, NH and Surrounding Communities

The GREAT COLORS of October have arrived... and WASR will keep you up to date with our FALL FOLIAGE REPORTS.  Immerse yourself in color by taking a stroll into the woods.. Walk a back road, go hiking down an old path, or take your bike down one of the great recreational trails in our area.  No matter which  option you choose, the crisp, fresh autumn air and the brilliant color will invigorate your senses!  

For state FOLIAGE REPORTS listen to WASR or visit www.WASR.net.  This year our website features a direct link to the NH STATE FOLIAGE CALENDAR and also to the OFFICIAL NH FOLIAGE REPORTS.  

1st Week of October... LAKES REGION:  Foliage here is now at about 25%. Even in the most southern tier of the Lakes Region every shade in the foliage palette is now on show, although there is still some green as well. From Alton & Wolfeboro to the Gilford and Laconia area, the overall tone of the trees is orange, with greens beginning to fade. Towards Hebron and the Newfound Lake area, more changed maples and dark orange foliage are showing, and sumac is in high color already. Some trees are almost all turned and others only show color on a single large branch. Hebron is an interesting mix because it includes steep slopes and wetlands. For a scenic lakeside drive this weekend, try North Shore Road to West Shore road around Newfound Lake, which includes all variations and degrees of foliage change.  Take a drive upstate and you'll find the GREAT NORTH WOODS is now at about 80% peak with the WHITE MOUNTAIN AREA being at about 40% peak color.  Get out and enjoy!
