You'll be happy about your Prior Planning, that should be quite close. Valley locals will tell you that peak foliage coincides with the dates of the Fryeburg Fair, but up in the Notches ( Pinkham, Evans, Crawford), "peak" is often a few days to a week earlier. OF COURSE, ask any number of people what they think is " peak", and you'll get any number of answers.

We usually find that many believe Columbus Day weekend is good for fall foliage in the Whites. However, north of the Notches that is usually just a little too late. Columbus Day wknd is good for the Lakes Region. But if you will be North of the Notches or in the Lincoln area, that first weekend of October is usually good, but is also bonkers for traffic, dining, etc. I hope you have made lodging reservations already.

New Hampshire in the fall is my favorite. Even though I am going up next weekend, I look forward to my weekend in October. Last year we went Columbus Day weekend for the Fryeburg fair, which was something to see, but very people busy and too much for me. I go there to get away from the crowds, this year we are doing our regular weekend, which is the weekend after Columbus Day. We still catch some pretty good foliage in some parts.

we're usually in north conway the first week in september but this year we wanted more time after our trip to the rockies to save a little more money. we'll also make a second trip down for the thanksgiving weekend as well. its our home away from home.

Yours and many others that post here, I'm so excited about the trip up, but dreading the ride home.
