Fall foliage in Montreal typically peaks in early October. With the season beginning in mid-September and running through the end of October there is plenty of time to enjoy the spectacular array of colors.
Montreal’s Most Colorful Trees
Montreal bursts with color during the fall with a wide variety of leaf changing trees. The silver, sugar, and red maples are spectacular in deep yellows, oranges and reds. The oak trees add a beautiful bronze-red and the sumacs add a fiery red to the landscape. Keep an eye out for the golden-yellow needles of the larches and brilliant yellows of the mountain ashes.
