October is peak foliage season in many parts of the U.S., and you don't have to travel to the woods to enjoy it. Some of the country's prime leaf-peeping spots will be available to stream live to your computer throughout autumn. To track the changing leaves in New Hampshire, Colorado, Vermont, and other famous foliage states, tune in to the live webcams below.

1. Pocono Mountains Live Cameras

The Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania offer stunning views year-round, and the sights are especially impressive during fall. You can head to PoconoMountains.com to stream live views of several popular spots around the region as the leaves start to change. Lake Wallenpaupack, the town of Jim Thorpe, and Bushkill Falls are just a few of the attractions with their own 24-hour webcams.

2. Blue Ridge Country Webcams

The Blue Ridge Mountains extend from Maryland down to Georgia. At BlueRidgeCountry.com, you'll find links to live web cameras of the mountains streaming from six states. Fall foliage peaks at different times in different parts of the country, which means cameras in northern states may show trees past their peak while the leaves down south are still green.

4. Weirs Channel Cam

New Hampshire is another New England state that attracts leaf-peepers each year. On Lake Winnipesaukee's website, you can stream a live view of the foliage on the mountains surrounding Weirs Channel.
