Tracking Fall Foliage in the Pocono Mountains


STROUD TOWNSHIP, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – It’s starting to look like fall…

“I love fall! This is fall!” says Lynda Williams, The Farmer’s Basket employee in Stroud Township.

It sound like fall, and tastes like it too.

But with this warm weather..

“It doesn’t feel like fall. Hopefully this Saturday will be cooler, so it will feel like fall. The cold weather helps!” laughs Williams.

As the leaves turn, so does a new season for tourism.

“It’s our second or third top season to be in the Pocono Mountains. We have a lot going on. There’s annual festivals going on every year,” explains Brian Bossuyt, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau marketing director.

On the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau website, locals and tourists can track the best weeks to see fall foliage

Bossuyt adds, “it’s just a good time to come up and enjoy and come and see all the beautiful colors that are going to start popping up everywhere throughout the region.”

Region by region, the site shows how many leaves have turned and when they’re expected to be the best and brightest. It’s called the Fall Foliage Forecast.

With the dry weather we’ve had this summer, it’s taking the trees a little longer to change color. But in the next few weeks, it’s expected to be beautiful in the Pocono Mountains.

Williams adds, “I just love if you go out to see the fall foliage, even though it’s dryer this year, you can still see the leaves are changing.”

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and local foresters work together on the online Fall Foliage Forecast, which is updated every week.
