Foliage Activities In and Around Stowe

Sterling Ridge Log Cabins, located only 30 minutes from Stowe, has Foliage activities for everyone! There may be no better way to describe Vermont in October and its unspoiled landscape of green that bursts into a breathtaking palette of apricot, crimson, plum, scarlet, and ochre than, spectacular! Nature dazzles with her brilliant show every autumn in the northeast, and Sterling Ridge Resort has front row seats! Along with our proximity to Stowe for fun activites, our acres of meadows and hills, pond that reflects nature’s splendor, and our unparalleled view of the mountains make Sterling Ridge a leaf-peepers paradise.

There are several options for viewing the spectacle of the transition from summer to Autumn in the Stowe area. Pick one of  countless scenic drives to take in the changing of the seasons. One of our favorites incorporates a number of quaint covered bridges that dot the Vermont countryside. For a description of one such covered bridge and foliage tour, click HERE.  You don’t have to go all the way to Stowe – even though the drive on 108 through Smugglers’ Notch Pass is beautiful, go for a drive on the Pleasant Valley Road in Cambridge, VT.

Want a bit of adventure to see the changing of the colors? Try a bird’s eye view of the changing of the seasons. Those with a need for a thrill, would likely enjoy checking out Vermont’s showy change of seasons from the air. For the pinnacle of leaf peeping, take the ride of a lifetime on a glider with Stowe Soaring! For more information on this truly special experience, go to http://www.stowesoaring.com/.

Do you like a little mystery? Enjoy solving a puzzle? In Stowe, visit the Percy Farm Corn Maze right off of Vermont RT 108. The Percy corn maze is open from mid-summer through late fall. Another option, from now until Oct. 18th, the Great Vermont Corn Maze! It is just a 1 hour trip from Sterling Ridge Log Cabin Resort to North Danville, VT! This truly unique maze changes every year and will keep you on your toes! Situated on 10 acres of a dairy farm, there are about three miles of trails surrounded by walls of corn. Plan on a bit of a workout and spending 2-5 hours solving the maze and enjoying the many other attractions on the farm. For more information, visit http://www.vermontcornmaze.com/index.html.

At the end of your day, relax in one of Sterling Ridge Resort’s beautiful log cabins. Light a fire in your fire pit, cook a meal in your fully equipped kitchen, and relish the beauty of nature. Take advantage of our mid-week specials, breathe in the clean, Vermont air, and fall in love with Fall!
