Fall is only a few weeks away, and it can’t come soon enough. I am looking forward to taking a few road trips in September and October to enjoy the foliage and everything that comes with fall in Vermont.
Some of my favorite Vermont fall drives include Route 100 from Warren to Weston, Route 7A between Manchester and Bennington, Route 30 from Dorset to Pawlet, and Route 125 between Middlebury and Hancock.
But it’s even more enjoyable to get off the beaten path and explore miles of rural back roads. I’ve stumbled across what are now some of my most treasured places in Vermont just by taking a few random turns and hoping for the best.
Still, no matter what, whether you go leaf-peeping on a scenic byway or quiet gravel road, you won’t have to look very far to find perfect autumn beauty in Vermont.
