NJ Hiking: Connect

A Social Network for New Jersey Hiking Enthusiasts

For foliage resources & reports, update your bookmarks to "NJ Fall Foliage".

The 2013 NJ Fall Foliage season has begun!

Autumn color can be fleeting and elusive, so to help others in search of where the color is around New Jersey (as well as nearby areas in PA/NY), you can post Fall Foliage updates in this forum.

For a list of foliage resources, check out our "NJ Fall Foliage" page. (If you have foliage resources we don't have listed there - web sites, twitter feeds, or whatnot - post them here and we'll add to our foliage page)

Post the park or area, the amount of color (ie, unchanged, low, medium, peak color), and the date, and we'll add the report to the "NJ Fall Foliage" page. Include a photo if you have one!

Black Rock Forest, NY - 10/18/13

There is some great color in Black Rock Forest right now, the nicest I have seen this year.  Lots of bright yellow, peach and orange.  There are still sections of mostly green trees here and there but also a lot of leaf drop.  I would say color change is about 60 - 70%.

More pictures HERE.

Palisades Interstate Park, NJ - 11/4/2013

Spectacular color!  Lots of leaf drop but that is as colorful as the trees.

So I guess the show's not over :-)

(looks beautiful! Too bad i'm trapped on some home improvement projects)

The home improvement projects will be there later, the foliage won't.  GO NOW!!!! :) :)

Thanks for the advice. I've been trying to beat the cold weather on some outdoor painting...but it looks like I'll be done this weekend. Maybe (just maybe!) I can get out on Sunday.
