Falling for Fall

Fall is arguably the most beautiful season in New England. The weather turns cool, there’s a crispness in the air and, best of all the leaves turn color creating a beautiful landscape! FSC has some gorgeous trees, full of bright orange, deep red and amber yellow leaves.

Where else can you leaf peep? Central Massachusetts has many parks, hiking trails and conservation lands:

  • Fitchburg’s own Cogshall Park has several hiking trails and is home to several swans who live on Mirror Lake.
  • Nearby Leominster State Forest has over 4,300 acres for hiking, swimming, fishing, mountain biking and other recreational uses.
  • The Trustees of Reservations preserve and care for 99 parks and public lands for recreational uses.

Before you head out be sure to check out the Massachusetts Office ot Travel and Tourism’s daily foliage report and regional foliage map.
