The Catskills, New York

This area becomes most vibrant in the fall, as the colors begin changing during the last two weeks of September. With 35 mountain peaks over 3,500 feet and beautiful riverscapes, it’s a hiker’s dream.

Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Come mid-September, the border between Washington and Oregon lights up. Try to get your hiking or rafting trip in before mid-October, as the leaves will begin to fall.
