This Fall Foliage Map Of Quebec Shows Exactly When & Where To See Leaves At Peak Pretty​

Fall is in the air — from the return of pumpkin spice lattes to a new crispness in the breeze. With that comes majestic fall foliage, and we've found a map to help you find Quebec's autumn leaves when they're at their most colourful.

Keep this map handy to make the most of upcoming hikes, road trips, day trips and photoshoots in la belle province.

Bonjour Québec

The map was created by Bonjour Québec, the official tourism website of the Quebec government.

It follows a colour code that varies from green to grey.

The legend explains:

  • Green: The leaves haven't started changing colour yet
  • Yellow: The leaves are beginning to change colour
  • Orange: The leaves are at a mid-point between starting to change colour and reaching their peak
  • Red: The leaves are nearly at peak
  • Brown: The leaves are past their peak
  • Grey: The season is over

You can also filter the map by national parks, wildlife reserves, trails, routes and other ways you might want to take in the scenery.

Right now, most leaves around Montreal are in the green zone. But going north toward the Laurentians, you'll find leaves in the yellow zone — beginning to change colour — around Sainte-Adèle as well as leaves in the orange zone — at their mid-point — around Mont-Tremblant.

The tool is updated every Thursday, so it was last updated on September 16 and will be updated again on September 23.
