WATCH: Vibrant Poconos Contender for Best Fall Foliage Destination Again!

The Poconos has been nominated and named a top fall foliage destination in this national contest several years in a row, securing 3rd place in 2021, 8th place in 2020, and 4th place in 2019.

A panel of experts and 10Best editors selected the Poconos as one of 20 nominees, while the Top 10 will be determined by public vote over the next four weeks. There is no cost to participate in the contest, and nominations aren’t purchased. Learn more here.

“The Pocono Mountains is truly a spectacular sight during the fall season,” said Chris Barrett, President/CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “From hopping in the car for a scenic cruise to climbing aboard a fall foliage train or chairlift, there are so many ways to enjoy autumn throughout our 2,400 square-mile, four-county region.”

Split into three distinct zones and updated weekly, the online forecast shows when and where leaves are projected to be at their peak across Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon counties.
