TRENTON, NJ (MECER)–Yesterday the NJ Forrest Service released the “Current New Jersey Fall Foliage Conditions” and the northern most sections of New Jersey are at the mid-pint or near peak for fall foliage viewing. Today, October 15, we visited Wawayanda State Park in Vernon Township on the Sussex County side of the park around Wawayanda Lake. Parts of Wawayanda State Park also include West Milford on the Passaic County side.
Sunday October 16, would be a great day for leaf peeping in the northern sections of the state. The National Weather Service reports that there will be mostly sunny, with a high near 61. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the afternoon.
Monday the National Weather Service reports rain and cloudy conditions, and the rest of the week is mostly sunny and much colder temperatures. It is time to get out there for good leaf peeping opportunities before it’s too late.
A good trail for viewing fall foliage viewing at Wawayanda State Park for Sunday October 16, 2022 would be the Lake Loop that goes around Lake Wawayanda.
Park at the Wawayanda Lake Day Use Area or Boat House and head towards the Wingdam Trail and the Lake Loop.
