Vermont's remaining foliage display is steadily revealing itself in the state’s southern valleys and the Champlain Valley region. This week, come along as we tour the Connecticut River Byway in central and southern Vermont. See the maple-lined streets of Windsor, the birthplace of Vermont; meet Jon, an organic farmer selling pumpkins at Deep Meadow Farm in Ascutney. From covered bridges, glimpse fiery red and golden leaves floating down the river, and in White River Junction, tour the historic downtown train station that still welcomes passengers daily.
While Vermont’s northern and higher elevations are past peak, hikers and leaf-peepers should keep in mind that the views from the trails will be opening and that the understory foliage continues to be bright and beautiful. Happy trails!
