Autumn is a fantastic season for running. Crisp air, orchards, pumpkins, and of course the changing leaves. We’ve put together several compilations of favorite fall foliage runs for several northeast U.S. states, plus a Top 20 foliage route lists for Eastern North America Cities and New England. This compilation is of some favorite routes in the New York and Connecticut, mainly focused on the countryside. See our separate ‘Top Foliage Routes in Eastern N. America Cities‘ for coverage of cities in NY & CT.
To plan for peak foliage running, follow the calendar. Peak is typically early October in the Adirondacks to late October in southern Connecticut.
