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

10/5/15 - Sunrise Mountain - Stokes S.F. [Sussex County]
Still low color in the northwest corner of the state, and low to no change elsewhere. Decent amount of leaf drop at Stokes – the winds from Hurricane Joaquin didn't help. Foliage is running a little behind this year, after a warmer than normal September.
Rt. 287 corridor north from New Brunswick – barely any color.
Rt. 206 corridor thru Chester - low color, mostly yellows.
Rt. 206 corridor thru Andover - low color with pockets of moderate. Mostly yellows but some pops of reds.
10/11/15 - Maurice River Bluffs - [Cumberland County]
