Published On 'August 28


As the air begins to cool and the leaves make their miraculous change in color, travelers from all over visit the Pocono Mountains to take in the area's stunning fall foliage. However, before you embark on this fantastic fall adventure, there are some things you should know, like when to visit and which spots have the best fall foliage displays. That's where the team at Cove Pocono Resorts comes in. With three adults-only resorts in the Poconos, we're experienced in the area's natural bounty and can point you in the right direction for an unforgettable fall trip.

When to Visit the Poconos to View Fall Foliage

Timing is key when it comes to experiencing the vivid symphony of fall foliage in the Poconos. The best time to visit is typically during the peak weeks of late September to mid-October. During this period, the lush greenery completes its transition into a stunning palette of reds, oranges, and yellows, creating a visual masterpiece that you won't want to miss. Keep in mind that Mother Nature's schedule may vary slightly from year to year, so be sure to check the local foliage forecast for the latest information.

Top Spots for Fall Foliage Viewing in the Poconos

No matter where you visit the Poconos, you're in for a fantastic display of fall colors. However, some spots offer more spectacular fall foliage than others. We've compiled a list of the best places for viewing fall foliage near our three romantic resorts in the Poconos.

Lake Wallenpaupack

Our original resort, Cove Haven, is located right on the shores of Lake Wallenpaupack. Conveniently, this lake is one of the best places in the Poconos to take in spectacular views of the fall foliage. Stroll along the tranquil shores of Lake Wallenpaupack, where the reflections of the foliage dance upon the water's surface. The lake's backdrop of rolling hills adorned with vibrant leaves provides a truly romantic and awe-inspiring sight.

Bushkill Falls

Known as the "Niagara of Pennsylvania," Bushkill Falls offers more than just cascading waterfalls. This fall, it transforms into a kaleidoscope of colors. Embark on a picturesque hike through the woods to witness the leaves in their full glory, all while being serenaded by the sounds of rushing water. This iconic destination in the Poconos is about a 10-minute drive away from Pocono Palace in East Stroudsburg. 

Tobyhanna State Park

Spanning over 5,400 acres, Tobyhanna State Park is a haven for nature lovers seeking a picturesque setting to enjoy the fall foliage. Whether you're exploring the hiking trails, paddling on the lake, or simply relaxing by the water, the vibrant colors will surround you.
