Fall Foliage in St. Lawrence County
Driving, hiking, biking, canoeing, or any other means of transportation will bring you up close and personal to the beauty of the fall season. There is no set time for the peak of the foliage season, nature determines the best time. But the North Country compensates for seasonal differences with its different elevations. The higher elevations in the southern portion of the county kick off the season in late September. The lower elevations along the St. Lawrence generally peak around the Columbus Day (Canada’s Thanksgiving) the second week in October. Whether you visit early or late there will be color somewhere worth viewing.
