Northeast Trip

The DW and I are planning a trip from south western PA to the north east this fall to see the tree leaves. The plan is to drive into Canada at Montreal, then drive up to the top of Maine and down thru New Brunswick, then down the coast of Maine. My question is: when does the weather get bad in Canada / Maine & New Brunswick ? We are thinking of leaving PA the last half of August.
Thanks

The best time to view in full bloom the red, yellow colors in the trees in Québec, close to Montréal are usually the first 2 weeks of October. Maximum colors in this area is around the first week end of October. As you go south to either Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine it is a bit later.

Weather gets bad in that part of Canada around mid November to Mid December. In mid November you might have occasional snow, frost during the night .

Thanks for the info jacmat. Is rt 20 from Montreal to Quebec to Riviere du-loop a good road ? How about the gas price up there ? Here right now in western PA - it's approx. $3.70 a gallon. I think we might be leaving out of here toward that way - the end of August. And then let the cold winter push us south.

Hyway 20 also known as the Trans Canada Highway is a good 4 lanes road.

Fuel is quite expensive in Canada, specially in Québec, Currently regular gas prices range around $5.00 to $5.10 per US gallon. In Canada fuel is sold in litres, current prices are in canadian dollars around $1.40 per liter, 1 US gallon = 3.785 liters and currently the Canadian dollar equals approx $0,97 US.

I recommend that you fuel you motorhome before crossing the US/Canada border

Have a nice trip,

If you have time when you are in New Brunswick shoot up to Prince Edward Island. We were just up there in early July.

Great seafood, ice cream, cheese, potatoes. Plus the scenery was excellent.

After $5 + a gallon for gas - might not be able to afford ice cream :-)
I'll have to figure how far I can go on a tank of gas. So I know if I can get in and outta Canada without a fill up. Thanks everybody for the info.
