Hey! I'm a freelance writer and guidebook author. I've authored "New Hampshire's 52 With A View - A Hiker's Guide", serve as editor of Appalachian Mountain Club's "Southern New Hampshire Trail Guide", and and am co-editor of the "White Mountain Guide", also for AMC. I'm currently beginning work on the 6th Edition of AMC's Southern New Hampshire Trail Guide, which will be published in 2025. I live in southern New Hampshire and can usually be found wandering throughout the state's mountains and forests.
One thing I love about living in New England is having an autumn season. It’s definitely my favorite time of year as the bugs are gone, the temperatures get cooler, and the foliage is, well, something you simply cannot miss. But, the downside is that the autumn season here is far too short! So, we have to make the most of it while it’s here. If you’re thinking “When do leaves change color in New Hampshire?” (hint: late September through October), keep an eye on this fall foliage prediction map and check out the prime foliage recommendations below.
