Fall foliage in Vermont is the prettiest experience around.
Fall foliage, Vermont is bursting with color—crimson, ginger, gold—over hills and mountains. You can view Vermont's fall foliage in many different ways.
"Depending on when you time your trip, the colors will be either descending toward the greener valley or brightening the lowlands as the summits turn the dun shades of late autumn." ~ Yankee Magazine, Sept./Oct. 2007 issue
Enjoy the fall foliage by car, bike or hike!
The most popular way to view many beautiful maple groves, farm lands, and covered bridges, is by car. Vermont offers many scenic drives through out the state. Vermont Route 108, starting at Smugglers Notch State Park and heading North is fabulous just for starters!
For the two-wheeled leaf-peepers, cycling along the beautiful countryside is the way to go. If you're traveling by car or bike while viewing the beautiful fall foliage in Vermont, you may want to stop at the many antique shops or craft shows in the area.
Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Vermont forests by taking a hike along the resort as Yankee Magazine suggests "Five miles of wooded trails stretch right from your cabin." Sterling Ridge is also close to many popular hiking spots such as The Long Trail.
Need a little adventure in your leaf peeping?
Adventurous types might consider taking a glider ride to get an aerial perspective of Vermont's mountains and valleys in autumn—simply spectacular. Those who would like to stay a bit closer to the ground but still want to play in the trees can try ziplining - Arbortrek in Jeffersonville can help you out with that!
Covered bridges abound
You can also take a self-guided Covered Bridge Tour by car or bike to 14 different bridges in Lamoille County. Picnic next to beautiful rivers and streams.
Fall foliage in Vermont also brings us apples, pumpkins and other locally grown produce!
