9 Short And Sweet Fall Hikes In Maine With A Spectacular End View

Welcome to the perfect time of year in Maine! While we all love the summer, there’s just something remarkably special about the fall season in Vacationland. The tourists have cleared out, the air has a slight chill in the morning and the leaves — well — they speak for themselves. As we get ready for colder temperatures later in the year, why not get outside and enjoy this perfect in-between time. These easy fall hikes in Maine are best done in the autumn season, so get out there and enjoy the sights of the leaves changing all over the state.

Fall Hikes In Maine

June 03, 2022

What months are best for watching the leaves change in Maine?

Plan your trip from north to south, as peak leaf peeping conditions hit northern Maine around the last week of September through the first week of October. Traditionally, Columbus Day weekend is considered the very best time to see the fall foliage in Maine.

What temperature is Maine in the fall?

Maine is a brisk, comfortable temperature of the low 50’s to the low 70’s during the fall days, and it will drop all the way to low 30’s to low 50’s during the night.
