The Adirondack Park provides excellent fall foliage viewing because the deciduous tree population is dominated by only a few species, which all change colors more or less in unison. This provides all-over color at one peak time, which is rare in other parts of the world.

Adirondack fall foliage is always difficult to report or predict with 100% accuracy because the region is vast and there are so many factors. Sunlight and the length of days are responsible for when trees show their yellows, oranges, and reds. The frosts and cold snaps determine the intensity of the deep reds and purples.
