October 15, 2022
TRENTON, NJ (MECER) – The NJ Forrest Service released “Current New Jersey Fall Foliage Conditions” yesterday and the northernmost sections of New Jersey are at or near mid-pint for viewing the fall foliage. Today October 15th we visited Wawayanda State Park in Vernon Township on the Sussex County side around Lake Wawayanda. Parts of Wawayanda State Park also include West Milford on the Passaic County side.
Sunday, October 16 would be a great day to view the leaves in the northern sections of the state. The National Weather Service reports that it will be mostly sunny, with highs near 61. A calm wind turning westerly around 5 mph in the afternoon.
On Monday, the National Weather Service reports rain and cloudy conditions, and the rest of the week is mostly sunny and much cooler temperatures. It’s time to get out for some good leaf-viewing opportunities before it’s too late.
A good trail to view the fall foliage at Wawayanda State Park for Sunday, October 16, 2022 would be the Lake Loop that loops around Lake Wawayanda.
Park at the Lake Wawayanda day-use area or boathouse and head to the Wingdam Trail and Lake Loop.
