Vermont: Foliage Routes

Fall in Vermont is like no other. The rolling green mountainsides are transformed into a vibrant red, yellow, and orange wonderland, where the hills quite literally come alive with leaf peepers eager for their own glimpse of this autumnal view. Foliage peaks anywhere from late September to mid-October — earliest in northern Vermont and where there is more elevation. Our guide to the best fall foliage runs in Vermont includes a selection of routes across the state, with particular attention to popular locations and trails/roads with great leaf views.
