Foliage Trip Tip

When planning a fall foliage trip, please allow time to leisurely leaf peep. Many of the roads you'll travel are two lanes and wind along our countryside through quaint inland and coastal towns. Take photographs from rest stops, stroll through the great Maine woods and enjoy our beautiful fall experience.
