The 19 Best Places To Enjoy New Jersey’s Fall Foliage In Early October

New Jersey has three major foliage zones, peaking throughout autumn. The first zone includes the northernmost portions of the state, and it’s currently heading into peak season. The second zone encompasses over half of the state, from north to south. It peaks in mid to late October. Zone three consists of our southernmost counties and will not peak until early November.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
