Fall Colors in Maine
Sharp reds, bright yellows, and stunning shades of orange are painted across mountains and farmland all throughout the state. Add the crisp, fall air and the smell of fireplaces burning, and you have yourself an autumn landscape that sounds too good to be true. But don’t worry, it is – that’s just part of what makes Maine so special.

You can enjoy great fall colors just about anywhere in Maine! Some of the most popular places to visit include Mt. Agamenticus (here in York!), beautiful Acadia National Park, Sebago Lake State Park, Shawnee Peak, Bradbury Mountain State Park, and Rangeley Lake.
