Schroon Leaf Peeping Report

From the I Love NY Website:

“In Schroon Lake look for foliage to be nearing midpoint with 35 percent color change and patches of intense reds and orange with some gold emerging from the green. 

In the Adirondacks region, in Essex County, Lake Placid foliage will be at peak with 95-100 percent color change this weekend and a mix of brown, orange, maroon and yellow shades. Spotters at Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington expect just past peak foliage with 70-80 percent leaf change and muted yellow and orange leaves, along with some green, but there has been significant leaf droppage. In the areas surrounding the mountain expect near peak to peak foliage with 75 percent color change and plenty of yellow and dark red leaves of average brilliance. Some of the red leaves dropped over the past week, but the colors are bright around the Ausable River.

In Ticonderoga, look for foliage to be approaching midpoint of change with 45-50 percent transition and orange, yellow and some red fall colors of average brilliance. In Schroon Lake look for foliage to be nearing midpoint with 35 percent color change and patches of intense reds and orange with some gold emerging from the green. In Crown Point, spotters are calling for 20-40 percent color change this weekend, and beginning to midpoint conditions, depending on location. Look for subdued shades of golden yellow, oranges, russet and a little red, with more color change as you climb away from Lake Champlain”.

This is the fourth 2017 Fall Foliage Report for New York State. Reports are obtained from volunteer field observers and reflect expected color conditions for the coming weekend. Fall Foliage Reports are issued every Wednesday afternoon.
