No, it’s not quite as brilliant as any foliage you’ll find in New England, but parts of California do have a distinct change in color once autumn rolls around. If you’re willing to make a drive to the Eastern Sierras, you can actually get in some near-peak foliage viewing.
The site California Color shines the spotlight on Mono County, which is the hotspot for California foliage right now. A recent post lists the color levels on several high country hikes, along with descriptions on what you’ll see along the way.
For a more detailed look at the Eastern Sierra, you can also get a free Fall Color Guide for Mono County in PDF form on the County’s web site.
