A week ago in southern NH. I was just there and the colors were undeniably at peak. It was raining the whole time though so not much in the way of photo op's, but still fun to look at.

From what I've heard, the Green Mountains in Vermont are already at or past peak. It's going to be a fast season this year. Mass should hit peak in most areas about mid Oct.

The higher eleveated areas of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains are at peak NOW so try for this weekend or next as the valleys will be at peak by then. The weather has been rainy and a lot of wind the last couple of days and the leaves will fall fast. Maine and NH are probably similar. You might want to check out some of those DOT webcams in the areas you are thinking of visiting. I visited my daughter last weekend at parents weekend at St. Lawrence Univ. and the drive through the central Adirondacks from North Creek through Tupper Lake was at near peak color. There was a very noticeable difference from thursday to sunday. The leaves are changing fast so plan to go soon.
