Fall in Western Maine
The secret is out—there is no better place to experience the fall season than in the Western Mountains of Maine. Yankee Magazine recently ranked the Bethel area as the second best place for leaf peeping while Down East Magazine chose the Artist’s Covered Bridge in Newry as their 2010 fall cover shot. Clearly, great minds think alike!
Our take? It starts with a spectacular setting, is enhanced by some amazing locals and business owners, and is made even better given the access to endless activities. Experience what so many are already talking about with one of many scenic drives or, set out in search of something more active and take advantage of scenic lift rides, zipline tours, twin zips, geocaching, hiking, mountain biking and award-winning Summer Activities Pricing & Adventure Pass »golf. Want to add some adrenaline to your leaf-peeping plans? Consider an Adventure Pass for unlimited day use of the Chondola lift, Twin Zips, Bungee Trampoline and Disc Golf course. Better yet, start planning your trip on our page.
Want to celebrate the season with the rest of us? Don’t forget about the many events that take place now through Halloween. Don't miss out on Fall Festival Weekend featuring the 13th Annual North American Wife Carrying Championship, 29th Annual Blue Mountain Arts and Crafts Festival and the new Mountain RAID race and Peak to Peak Challenge.
