Vermont's fall foliage is world-renowned for its beauty and richness of color. Our state is among the most heavily forested in the U.S., and maple trees make up significant pieces of our woods, so when their leaves begin to turn from green to red, orange and yellow, the landscapes become breathtaking works of art. Planning a fall foliage trip to Vermont? You'll be glad you did. Check out our foliage season tips as you plan so once you get here, you can focus on the scenery. Advance reservations are strongly recommended during the foliage season, especially for the busy weekends from late September through mid-October.
The Forecaster can give you an idea of when and where leaves typically start changing color in the fall to give your best shot at peeping the peak.
Autumn hikes, mountain bike rides, making camp among the fiery leaves, and paddling and fishing on clear water reflecting the foliage are just some of the ways to enjoy this season.
Get cozy in your car and settle in for a beautiful, scenic drive through Vermont's historic downtowns, quaint roadside stops and scenic vistas.
