As summer turns to fall, the visual transition in the Moosehead Lake area is extraordinary. Autumn displays brilliant hues of red, yellow and orange. The typical "leafpeeping" season runs from mid-September thru mid-October. The change in the landscape from the greens of summer to the fall colors is breathtaking.
There are several scenic loops for those traveling by automobile listed below. It is also a wonderful time of year for hikers to trek along our many mountain paths and nature trails. Whatever your mode of transportation may be, make the Moosehead Lake region the leafpeeping destination for you!
Whatever time of year, we highly recommend that you pick up a copy of The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer at one of the shops in Greenville. This will give you very detailed maps of the entire Moosehead region, assuring that you don't miss out on any scenic roads!
