There’s no question that last week felt like fall here in Kennebunkport, but this week’s forecast has summer written all over it. Precisely what fall in New England is all about! Warm days and lots of sunshine followed by a cool evening breeze perfect for a light jacket on your evening stroll through the streets of Dock Square is all part of the fall foliage experience on the Maine Coast.
But the most important thing about fall foliage is, of course, the changing of the leaves! And there is no question that those autumnal colors are on their way! We’ve started to notice some pops of bright colors around town, and every day see leaves changing to those gorgeous golds and stunning reds. This year started with plenty of springtime rain, which means that this year’s foliage season is sure to be a stunner.
Some of the best ways to enjoy the fall foliage in coastal Maine is by hiking and nature walking, and fortunately, the Kennebunkport area is home to nearly countless miles of trails perfect for a fall adventure! All of us at the Maine Stay Inn are happy to help you find the perfect trail for your getaway – and we’ll help you tailor it depending on the length, elevation gains, distance from the inn, and setting. The Kennebunkport Conservation Trust has miles of paths through the woods just a few minutes’ drive from the inn, as does the Kennebunk Land Trust. In fact, they even have one trail that is an easy walk from downtown Kennebunkport.
So grab your walking shoes and get ready to snap some pics of the fall foliage season here in Kennebunkport Maine!
